Digi Stamps 4Joy - March Progressive Challenge

Good morning all. I am here this morning to share my Christmas card using the freebie over at Digi Stamps 4Joy. This is a progressive challenge and at the beginning of every month we get this wonderful email with our freebie to use for the month.

This months image was a little different. It was a collage of Christmas words, so I decided to make a collage card.

I cut a tag out of the freebie and distressed it with Tim Holtz distressing ink. I had all the die cuts already cut out from cards I made last year, so I was able to put this card together fairly quickly. All the die cuts are from the Tim Holtz collection except for the flower. That was made using 3 punches. Gems, ribbon and paper were from my stash.

I just got reallocated to a project at work which will require some traveling back and forth to Portland Oregon. Appears I will not start traveling until April, so still gives me plenty of time to get ahead on my DT cards...and a few extras as well. Nice thing about the internet is you can access it from anywhere, so I will still be able to keep up, even on the road.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
