Die cuts and / or punches challenge at Fab'n'Funky

Hi all

OOO! - I'm late again - can't beleive what I did! - I had my card all ready and left the glitter to dry on the snowflke before sticking it on (my favourite chunky glitter jewels) - when I went to stick it on i must have cut my finger on the sharp glitter and ended up with smears of blood all over my image - how can that happen!!  I had to reprint and recolour the image  - how annoying lol.

It's challenge day again at 

and our theme is

The DT were lucky enough to all get an image to work with from our lovely sponsor

This little bear is so adorable - I'm not surprised you've used him several times and the Nordic paper suits him so well. The sparkly snowflake is a wonderful - if dangerous - addition!!
