This is a card I have made using some of Sue Wilson's fabulous Christmas dies.  I originally made it for last weeks Less is More Challenge but I decided it wasn't CAS enough so I made another - you can see that one HERE.

I apologise for the quality of the photographs, it is so difficult to photograph sparkly cards - it looks so much nicer in real life.  I used the Framed Noel to cut one shape from silver glitter card and another from white card stock, I then trimmed the NOEL portion from the white card stock.

To make the Poinsettias I used the Classic Poinsettia dies to cut the silver glitter card and the Mosaic Poinsettia to cut the white card stock.  My inspiration for this card came from one of Sue's - hers was black and red though!

I created a layer of silver glitter card and topped it with a layer of white card stock - I pierced the edge of the white layer.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
