D for DieCuts

Good Morning! It has been a long time since I have been by here. 
Things just seem to be getting in the way of blogging. I am working to turn that around though and I spent a portion of the weekend just colouring up some images to use on cards in the coming weeks so with luck I will be around some. 
The card that I have to share today is for the new ABC Christmas Challenge. Our theme this time around is
D for DieCuts
a nice easy one.
Our generous sponsor is
  and they have offered up a great prize of 5 Digital Images of the Winner's Choice.

As I mentioned, I have been colouring up a number of images and I have opted to focus on some images that have not seen a lot of used. I figure that I should probably try to use them a bit more often. The  lovebirds that I have used for this card are a fun image from Lili of the Valley.  I think that I have only used this image once before though I am not sure why that is.
After coloring it up in mostly neutrals with a fun splash of holiday bright, I dug through my stash and found these great Basic Grey papers. Keeping the layout simple, I have created a fun accent using some snowflake dies that I have layered up and embellished with a pearl gemstone. The sentiment has been stamped on a banner cut using the Tattered Banners die from Tim Holtz.
I hope that you will join us, I know that you all have some great diecut ideas to share and I look forward to seeing them.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
