Angel Hugs Button Frame Card

I love to create simple-to-make cards that look striking.  Digistamps printed fairly large make great focal points for cards and you don't really need much else.  
Christmas is coming and at this time of year we are making lots of cards, so it's great to have something that's easy to do but looks impressive.  I have used an Angelberry digistamp from Polkadoodles and lots of lovely buttons that I recently won from Do Crafts.

To start I folded a green piece of A4 card in half to create an A5 sized card.  I then printed the Angel Hugs stamp within an oval shape and cut it out, then 'painted' with watercolour pencils.  I used a dabbing action on the penguin with grey and black to give the illusion of fur.  Once the image was dry I added some glitter glue to the wings and baubles. 
I glued the image to the card and used buttons of various sizes around the oval to create a frame.  To finish off I added an outline sticker sentiment and a few buttons in the corner. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
1. Polkadoodles - Week 35 Fairy Time
2. Do Crafts - Framed Card Challenge
3. Paper Creator's Crafts - #13 Anything Goes
