Hi Everyone!

I'm here to share a card for the new Lawn Fawnatics Challenge

This time our challenge is called: "Create a project using only dies"  and this is my take:





I have been making so many cards with the Strawberry dies I wanted to go in the complete opposite direction with this one (-:  - And also - It is always good to have some Christmas cards ready well in advance right???!!!???

I made a cardbase and diecut a window panel. I then diecut all my other decorations and inked the poinsettia and the forest border. I inked the bg at the same time making sure to mask the edges of my cardbase.
