CHRISTMAS SPARKLE WITH APPLES

Happy Sunday all and hope you are having fun
I've a couple of cards to share with you today and was hoping I might
manage another one but I've got some guests arriving shortly for 
a few days so that could crush my crafting time!

So here goes ... I think I've become addicted to word dies of late!


Oh so pleased with myself for managing another Christmas make!
Still a long way to go with them but I've made a start!

This card is to enter the
  Freshly Made Sketches Challenge  
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes (2nd entry)
Pixies Snippet Challenge as I've used a mini scrap of gold twine 
which I found lurking amongst my ribbons and a scrap of gold foil card 
to make the 'Merry' die cut from Clearly Besotted. which is double layered.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Uniko Studio - Background Builders Christmas
Clearly Besotted: Christmas Sparkle (heat embossed in black)

A birthday card for a change but still loving the word dies!

Card Recipe:
