Bah Humbug Challenge 35 - Sentiments or Text

I was very sorry to not have been able to make last weeks fab challenge of
Here Come the Girls .. In the 2 years of Bah Humbug running their fabulous weekly challenges I am very proud to have managed every single challenge so far. Anyway, I have managed this weeks challenge of incorporating either Sentiments or Text I have used 'crepe' paper for the first time within my cardmaking. I have seen it used within scrapbooking and so admired the effects that can be achieved. I only have a few odds and ends of crepe paper and in one colour 'Red' so that for me was very fortunate as red nicely finished off the card. The digi image is from the fabulous Meljen Designs
Here is my card

I threded the button onto the Crepe Paper. I have added a gem and colour to the plain white button.
I added some sparkle to the 'digi' image using a sakura pen and glamour dust. The holly berries have been made more '3D' using glossy accents
