An Oldie but Goldie!
I'm so pleased that I'm (just about) managing to keep up with these, I'm sure I'll really appreciate it come the end of the year when, for once, I won't be tearing my hair out trying to get all my christmas cards made. At least, that's the plan!
This card was made for the following challenges:
Bah! Humbug! whose theme is 'An oldie but a goldie' using craft stuff you haven't used for a while. This sums up my christmas tree which was part of a QVC TSV a couple of years ago.
Winter Wonderland 'My Sentiments Exactly' where they are asking you to use a sentiment as your focal point on your card or creation. I've used a sentiment from the Daisy and Dandelion christmas stamp set and mounted it on my new Die-namics die cut.
Jingle Belles where the theme is to follow this sketch
* Papers - Dovecraft 'Winter Wonderland'
* Punch - MS 'Doily Lace'
* Die Cut - My Favourite Things Die-namics 'Polka Dot Greetings Die & Stamp Set'
* Everything else from my stash
I used lots of Stickles Star Dust on this card together with a very sparkly ribbon, unfortunately it doesn't show up very well on the scan.
Thank you to all of you who have been leaving such lovely comments, It's been a joy reading each and every one of them.

Thank you for your support it means a lot to me.
Oh My Giddy Aunt! I had this TSV too and you've reminded me there's still a good lot of it lying neglected in my own drawers, so can hardly shout at you screaming "Neglect!" It was such an extensive kit I'm not sure I'll ever manage to use it all lol! Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
