The Creative Cottage DT - Christmas Time

Morning Folks!!
Firstly I need to apologize for my lack of blogging lately but these school holidays are killing me and eating into my crafting time and we still have two weeks to go, grrrr lol!! Anyway, enough complaining for one day hehe. Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at The Creative Cottage Challenge Blog and the luvly Linda has chosen the theme of Christmas. For my card I have used the Oh Christmas Tree Kit which is available to purchase here. So loved working with this kit, the colours are really fab, the pinks and greens.
Had to show you all a close up of the snowflake which is a die that I used through my cuttlebug and then coated with Diamond Dust. The picture doesn't do it justice, irl it is so sparkly and I pushed a Papermania glitter brad through the centre.
I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday so I'll be entering my card there. Thanks for popping over and please be sure to check out the challenge blog for some gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the dt. Also just wanted to let you know that we have a surprise for you all on the 6th of September so mark the date in your diaries, you won't wanna miss out!!
