MAWTT Someone Special at Christmas

It's Shell's turn to host the challenge over at Moving Along With The Times this week and she chose 'Someone Special at Christmas' for the theme.

I bought some DL cards from Craft UK at the Alexandra Palace craft fair and decided to make a DL card and use my Spellbinders heart strip die. The red card is from Papermill. I embossed the white paper (yes, it does look pink but that's just my bad photography!) with a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder and matted it on to the red card. After cutting my heart strip I added one large green gem to the centre and then all I had to do was add the sentiment which I generated on the computer.This is the nearest I get to making any cards for 'someone special' I'm afraid.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge - Embossing
Artbymiran Challenge - Anything Goes
Kitty Bee Designs Challenge - Dies and/or Punches
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
Clean and Simple Sunday Challenge - Emboss it
Scribble and Scrap Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments Designs - Use a sentiment
Inky Chicks - Christmas
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
