Easel ATC - Christmas with buttons

The MIX-ability challenge this week is to add buttons to the project. I felt like celebrating Christmas in July. My air conditioner at my office died so I had to THINK cold to get through. I took scraps of paper and decopauged the base of my ease; ATC. I also did it on a piece of scrap that I was going to make the tag out of.

I stamped the tag shape from Holiday tags set (MFP) with black stazon on the separate decopauged scrap.

I finished my easel ATC with burlap, buttons strung on twine, and quilled pine cones. I added white acrylic paint to the pine cones and rolled them in glitter.

MFP sets I used:

This photo shows how the easel looks.

I am going to enter this in Dragonflies Journey's Challenge # 65
