Our Challenge for you at LHOSM this time is to use your ‘Die Cuts’ Never a difficult one for me as I love my die cuts, flowers and lace. I’ve chosen the very sweet Magnolia Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda from the new Waiting For Christmas collection and combined her with some gorgeous Pion Designs papers to create this pretty card:
