Y for Your Favorite Dies or Punches

Good Morning, I hope that you are all well. Only just under two weeks now until the big day, I hope that you are all ready. If you still have a few more cards to go for this year or you are looking to get a head start for next year we have another challenge for you today over on the ABC Christmas Challenge. The theme this time around is
 
Y for YOUR Favourite Die or Punch

We are lucky to have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge and they have offered up some wonderful prizes for some of our lucky participants.


 
There's also a 50% sale on at the moment so pop over there to grab a bargain...

 


and
The lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp who is offering one lucky entrant 
A $15 voucher to spend in her store 
 
 
 
I am all about saving time right now as I am knitting like crazy to finish off all of the Christmas presents that I have on the go while still trying to take the time to train our new pup so for my card I have used an image from Saturated Canary that I had previously coloured and accented with lots of stickles.  
 
I have used my favorite Spellbinders circles which seem to appear on almost every card it seems and I have also added what is sure to become a new favorite, my new Magnolia doohickey poinsettia.
The layout for this card was based off a wonderful sketch from this week's Sketch and Stash challenge which made it super simple to put together a great card in a flash.
 
Here is a close up of the image for anyone that wants a better look.
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by, be sure to check out the wonderful creations from the rest of the DT over on the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog.
Have a great day and Happy Crafting!
