Die Cut Divas ~ April Challenge Last Day

It's the last day of our challenge at Die Cut Divas. This month our challenge is


We are sponsored this month by Poppystamps who will be giving our winner a $20 gift certificate.

Here's my card

I started with Poppystamps Holly Frame and Stencil. This was the first time I used a stencil/die combination. I decided to use the stencil and add color on the holly leaves with Lucky Clover distress ink. I then die cut the panel with the matching die. I added red adhesive mini pearls to mimic holly berries. To frame the window, I used the die with gold cardstock. I carefully trimmed away the vines and leaves, leaving just the gold ring. I adhered the die cut to an A2 white card base after die cutting the central circle with a Sizzix circle die. I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card using Catherine Pooler Designs Merry and Bright stamp set with Versamark and heat set the gold embossing powder.  

Here's a photo of the card partially opened.

To be honest, I think that this is the first aperture/window card I've made. I think it turned out OK. You have a few hours left to show us your aperture/window card.
