Its that time of the week again!

Yes my crafting friends.........its my weekly Christmas post!

This week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown the theme is love and hearts. Slightly easier for me than the colour combo last week. However it has taken me all week to get my ideas together! I knew I wanted to use  the digi sentiment from Create with TLC  but that was as far as I got, however this is what I came up with:

I remembered seeing this tutorial on Technique Time Tuesday last November. I loved the cards I saw made using this 3D punch element technique but hadn't tried it. So today I followed the step by step guide to make my heart bauble. I actually used a heart die cut. I love how it turned out and I think it is perfect for the sentiment.
The background card is dotted embossing to match the polka dot DSP but the photo doesn't show it so well.
I added the twine and heart button to hang my bauble and then stamped a little red heart to finish off my card.

I will also enter this into the following challenges:
Crafting All Seasons-die and punches
Can you Digi it-Love is in the Air

Have a great Friday!
