CHNC challenge 163: use a die cut or a punched shape

It's Saturday again (and I can't believe that I haven't blogged since Monday, but had been feeling really poorly and just not up to much and then found that I couldn't concentrate even when I was beginning to feel better). Anyway, here is my card for my CHNC challenge 163: use a die cut or a punched shape. You can use any die cut, even one that is commercially ready made, so it's an easy challenge.

For my card I used four Die'sire snowflake dies running them through the eBosser with various offcuts of paper that toned with the background and the snippet band across the bottom taken from Echo Park Winter Wishes. I joined two lots of snowflake dies together with little brads.

There are four sponsors for CHNC challenge 163, so that means four chances of being picked randomly as a prize winner, so I hope you'll click on the link and join in the fun. One of the sponsors is a regular, Bugaboo Stamps, who kindly provided AKV reindeer skate image that I coloured with spectrum noir pens and tore around a perspex template, edging with one of the spectrum noirs. The greeting is recycled.
