At Tuesday Throwdown we want you to get out all your buttons and bows and show them off. Our sponsor is DeeDee's Digis. I just love this new Christmas set, Beauty of the Season. You will have to go take a look. The three small poinsettias are actually a corner that I cut apart. I decided to do a non traditional Christmas color. Actually Purple is such a royal color I think it should be our color for Christmas. After all the whole reason for Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Christ and He is our soon and coming King.
My camera doesn't have enough zoom power so I took a couple closer up pics. I decided I would do a fun gift pocket. I cut two triangle pieces to form the pocket and punched the top. The white was embossed, antiqued with purple chalk and then stitched on the front. Next the Basic Grey print was pleated and stitched on. After I gathered the lace I sandwiched it between back and front and stitched together. I wove ribbon thru my buttons and then attached. I reinforced the holes and attached the white ribbon to hang it by. I cut a couple layers and attached one of the small poinsettias for the tag. The poinsettias were all water colored, glittered and then cut out and layered. Lastly I attached some beads to the bottom.
You can see the flowers are layered and glittered in this photo
