Oh, this image look gorgeous the way you have coloured it and dressed it up with all those pearls. Makes me wonder if all the red ones are now gone from your box? I sorted out a big box of buttons a while ago, so I can sympathise, but at least I did not have a deadline for creating a card with it LOL. Love those PPs, too, resulting in a very elegant Christmas card.
