Fabulous Friday - Shhhhhhh! Christmas!

Hi everyone.  Wow is the weekend nearly here already?  Yay :-)

A quick post for you today - I have a shhhhh...... CHRISTMAS card for you today LOL!

We are into week 2 of our Use a Die challenge over at Polkadoodles.  You have until Friday, 23 October to enter.

I couldn't resist using the fabulous Frosted Winter - Octavia collection for my card today.

My easel card design is using one of the pre-coloured images in a frame, from this fabulous collection.  I die cut the framed image and then the frame it self, using Spellbinders stitched oval die.

I also couldn't resist adding some sparkle, using some fine silver glitter, to the icy elements and stars. 

The second die cut frame is layered using some foam dots to add some dimension. As well as adding some to the chalk board sentiment for the easel to rest against.  I hope you can see the sparkle - it's so pretty :-)

A quick close up to see a little more detail to the layers and the stitched oval die - I love this die and think I need to get some more :-)

So, now it's over to you and I know you all use lot's of die's in your crafting - so go along and enter this fortnights challenge at Polkadoodles.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
