Christmas Card Challenge Week #30

Hi everyone!

It's been a few months since I've posted a card for this years Christmas Card Challenges.  I took a leave of absence, and even though I'm not officially back until next Sunday, I couldn't help but play along with this weeks callenge, which is Die Cuts.  And you know how I am about embossing.  HERE is a challenge to support that habit. lol  Here is what I came up with. 

For this weeks challenge, click HERE.


I love how this turned out!  I used my Tim Holtz Carved Ornaments die and the MFT snowflake dies for this.  I'm behind on my Christmas cards, so I've created two of the same for this week, and I'll probably do the same each week until I'm caught up.  I think I'll have all of my cards done by Christmas that way. lol  I've also combined the following challenges into my card this week.

Frosted Designs - Black & White plus 1
Speedy The Cat's Friends Challenge #61 - Make it Sparkle (my snowflakes are loaded with Stickles)
CFC #8 - Getting Edgy (my first time joining and yes, I did use a border punch although you can't see it that much lol)
I do hope you'll head over to the CCC blog to see what the other wonderful desingers have created.  They're always fabulous!!

Have a great day!
Hugs!
