Kitty's Christmas Tree

Hello my crafty friends.
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and found great bargains today on this Black Friday shopping day.   My card today is for the challenge over at  Craftitude Challenges The sponsors today are Digi Darla Designs and  Eureka Stamps. To help give you some more creative inspiration and a chance to win some fabulous images from our sponsors, head on over to Craftitude Challenges and see what our talented design team has come up with. The digital image is the kitten pawing at the ornaments. The challenge was to use buttons, therefore I used buttons for the ornaments. Did I use my Spectrum Noir markers? Of course I did, lol only on the kitty, IB1,DG3. For some sparkle I used Stickles diamond glitter for the trim on the hat.  I used my Martha Stewart pine punch that I purchased at Joann's Fabric to decorate the tree and fireplace. I cut the tree base with the Silhouette Cameo. I mounted the tree and kitty on pop dots. And used a scrapbook program called Scrapbook Max 2. It is a user friendly program and you can use clipart that you purchase or find for free online as well as the kits they have for sale and a forum for members who share their work.  In saying that, I was able to add the fireplace, stockings, candle, present and sentiment to build a scene around the kitty.  The buttons, crystals and angel were from my stash. I also used Stampin Up clear crystals that I colored with Spectrum Noir DR6 on the fireplace. My base card is burgundy and I used Recollection Seasonal paper collection for the mat background.  Thanks for leaving your kind comments. I look forward to reading them everyday. Now I'm off to have some left over turkey. Happy Holidays.
