New Home with Buttons

I made another card for LIM's Ribbon/Button challenge last night as I wasn't sure if my first card was CAS enough, however I've received a plethora of favourable comments from LIMette's so maybe it is? Thanks girls! This one is for my cousin Paul who is moving house at the end of the week but after I'd finished it I did wonder if it was a bit too girly for a bloke, he'll be getting it anyway as I have a few birthday cards to make for August before I go back to work on Wednesday :(

I used SU's Good Neighbours set for the house and the tree trunks came from Trendy Tree's. I found some buttons in my stash to make the tree tops and tied some linen thread through them. Versafine Vintage Sepia and Blue Lagoon inks were used and I mounted the white card onto a dark brown piece. The sentiment (which should be slightly more to the left) is by Rachelle Anne Miller. The high standard set on this challenge is making me more critical of my own cards but I don't have time to redo it. People to see and places to go, hey ho.

Thanks for sparing the time to look.
