Use die cuts with Sparkles Christmas Challenges

Hi everyone,
I hope you're all well.

It's time to start a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenges.
The theme this month is Die Cuts.

I've used this rather cute Gingerbread man die, paper piecing all his details...

I've also used a memory box 'Merry Christmas' die, cut from red mirri board with glitter added to the right hand side.  The gingerbread man is mounted on some glitter card which actually came from some packaging from last Christmas, and has been cut using tonic dies.
The backing paper is by first edition and I used part of the larger design to make the border 'stop' as this is an easel card.

I've finished off with a tag and a handmade bow.

We have two fabulous sponsors this month...

$10 Voucher

and also this fabulous prize from Crafty Individuals.

I hope you'll join us.

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Craft-Dee BowZ - Handmade bow
CHNC Extra - December
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge
Craft Your Passion - Anything goes
613 Avenue Create - Paper Piecing
Glitter and Sparkle - Include a bow

Thank you so much for visiting. I'm going to finish my daughter's birthday card now. She'll be 24 next week...where did those years go???

Oh I nearly forgot to mention...I got a card printed on the letter page of Simply Cards and Papercraft this month. Isn't it great seeing one of your cards in print. Certainly made me smile. Anyhow, better get on. See you soon.
Hugs Helen xx
