How Many Sleeps....

I have always counted sleeps until Christmas - not sure why but I have done it as long as I can remember - sometimes starting back as many as 100 - sigh! LOL!

Often I cut multiple copies of one Die, for using later on, makes it so quick to create a card at a later stage and this is one of those cards - the hardest part about it was choosing which Dies to layer.  Starting from the base Die layer up, I have used the Decorative Labels Twenty-Eight Spellbinders® Decorative Elements Nestabilities®, Labels Ten Nestabilities®, Whirl About Shapeabilities® Cut • Fold • Tuck die templates finishing off with the Frosty Forms Shapeabilities® All Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders® Grand Calibur® Machine and have been popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Foam Dots

Finishing off with Seam Binding and a recycled gold embellishment from a Christmas decoration.

This card is for the following challenges:
