Together Forever Using a Christmas Cut. Are You Up for the Challenge?

Hello Crafty Friends!
Did you know there is a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas today? Every Tuesday a new challenge is posted and this is your chance to use any of your die cutting tools to create a card. I have a Cricut Expression, which I use everyday and a Gypsy that I still need to figure out. Many of you may remember my husband bought it for my birthday last year and he reminds me every-now-and-then that I should be using it. Okay...after saying that...I am definitely making myself feel guilty, so I should try sooner than later. : )  Send me your tips though. I am going to need them!

The challenge this week is to use a Christmas cut, but do NOT make a Christmas themed card. 

Can you tell I am feeling lovey dovey here?

I used the Joys of the Season cartridge to cut these 2 Turtle Doves at 4". Then I stamped Together Forever in the upper right corner. 
  • The swing was cut from silver metal paper.
  • The doves and heart were cut from white glitter paper. 
  • White ribbon with silver trim created the bow and there are two silver heart brads in the lower corners.
  • Wiggly eyes
Now it is your turn to create and submit. I will visit throughout the week and leave you some love too. : )

Stay Creative,

Special Note: There are only 3 days until my Blogoversary. Be on the lookout for a giveaway soon!
