To Die For

Good morning lovely bloggers!
It's time for the new challenge at The Crafty Pad!
It was my turn to choose the theme this week & I chose 
Basically, we want to see your projects using Dies/Punches!
Here's my little offering!
I made a little A6 Easel card using gold card stock which has been in my stash forever!
The image I have used is of course from 
The Crafty Pad Designs
The Circle Sentiment is also from The Crafty Pad Designs
 The papers I've used were from Papermania & have been 
in my stash for a long while!

I coloured the image with a combination of Promarkers & Flexmarkers
then added some stickles for a bit of sparkle.
The image was then die cut with an oval nestie & matted onto a
scalloped oval of the gold cardstock!

The sentiment was cut with a circle die them matted onto a scalloped circle!
I added some holly leaves & berries which were punched out using a Tonic punch.
I added some stickles to them too!
Thanks for stopping by to check out my humble little offering!
Don't forget to check out the awesome makes on the Crafty Pad challenge blog.
