Christmas Challenge All Year Round #29

I haven't done a challenge in weeks, and just felt like making a card today. So I found a cool christmas challenge at Christmas Stampin All Year Round. The challenge is to hightlight some of your image.

I need to start my challenge with a big thank you to Debbie P. A fantastic and very talented friend. A while back I stamped these Holiday Line Up reindeers and had yet to use them. Also at Stamp Camp a couple of weeks ago I used her label die cut and cut out a whole heap of them. So thanks Debbie. Check out her blog here as she is one talented lady.

Any way back to the card. I have used the new holiday treasure D.S.P which matches the ruby red, choc chip and old olive C.S. I so love these colours. My sentiment is the tricky bit. I brought the 'card making and papercraft' magazine yesterday and found a great way to use the square scallop. You punch out the square scallop and then trim either side to make it into an label for your sentiment. Not sure if I'm explaining this right, but you can see from the card what I mean. Any way I thought it was another way to showcase how to use your punches differently.

Thanks for looking and hope you all have a lovely day.
