Dashing Through The Snow

Well here I am, back again with my second card of the day and it's yet another christmas card.
This time I've used one of the LOTV toppers which are no longer available. Fortunately I have quite a few of these sheets as none of the new art pads appear to feature christmas images yet. I used Lifestyle Crafts QuicKutz nesting frames 9 to make the easel base card and I can really recommend these dies for use with the Grand Calibur. There are 8 dies in the set ranging from 1.3" x 1.5" to 4.8" x 5.8" so fabulous for making shaped cards, sentiment tags and cutting out images. The spotty paper is another free with a magazine and the other dies I used are Memory Box 'elegant scrollwork' and Marianne Creatables LR0111. I added Stickles to the topper and flower and the gems, sentiment and christmas wreath are all from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Charisma Cardz challenge 'Shaped Cards'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'Dashing Through The Snow'
Deep Ocean challenge 'Let's Sparkle'
Dream Valley challenge 'No Squares Allowed'
Christmas At Sweet Stampin' challenge 'Winter Sports' (sledging)
Sparkles Christmas challenge 'Favourite Festive Colours' (red, white & green)
Totally Gorjuss challenge 'Anything Goes With Swirls' (my 2nd entry)
As You Like It challenge 'Favourite Die and/or Punch' (making shaped cards - the nesting frame) (my 2nd entry)
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'Spots or Stripes' (my 2nd entry)
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything Goes with an option of using 2 stamps' (I didn't go for the option on this one)

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you like what you've seen.
