Dies R Us July Challenge (Team A) "Christmas in July"

Hi there!

It's time for Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme this month is Christmas in July!  I really don't want to think about Christmas for we had a very rough winter with lots of snow and cold temps!  But, it was fun getting out some fancy dies and playing with them for my Christmas card.  I really do love the poinsettia die!  You have until July 13th to enter the challenge.  The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the Dies R Us store!  So, bring out those dies and create some Christmas fun.  Many of you may have Christmas cards done, but this is my first one for the year...yeah!

For my card, I started with a white card base and die cut scalloped circles.  I stamped the image and added glitter.  The poinsettia die was used to cut the foil paper for the flower and leaves.  The tag die was used to cut gold foil paper and placed behind the sentiment.   I wish you could see the card with the foil die cuts in real life for the photo doesn't capture them as well as what I'd like.  Gems, ribbon, and bells to finish off the card.

The dies used on my card can be purchased at the Dies R Us store.  And, the list of dies used today are the following...
