A LITTLE BIT PUNCHY

Hi all! As promised, today I have the card I did for Wendy's second challenge - using your punches on your card! Again, right up my alley so I enjoyed this immensely! I love my punches and hardly ever make anything without using at least one - but on this card, I used several!! I used my Snow Swirled set for this card too (except for the sentiment, that is Best Yet) - another Christmas card finished and ready to mail, lol!! I am still busily getting ready for my trip plus I have the added pleasure of having a filling replaced today that came out...uuuuggggghhh.....so I am off to the dentist!!! And, tonight I am teaching my last workshop before I leave so it will be a very busy day!! I hope you all have a great day and find some time to create!!
I am leaving you with the recipe for this one and then I am outta here!
Card Recipe:
Paper - Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Naturals White card stock, Holiday Treasures Designer Series Paper
Ink - Chocolate Chip and Always Artichoke classic inks

Accessories - Large Oval Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Designer Label Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Photo Frames Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Always Artichoke narrow grosgrain ribbon, Bold Brights brads, Crop-a-dile, Mat Stack and paper piercer
