GDT at ABC Christmas Challenge and Blog Candy Alert

I am honored today, to be a GDT at ABC Christmas Challenge.  I won a Guest Design spot while participating in the Feline Playful Blog Hop in September 2011.    Both sites are full of wonderful talent and inspiration and I suggest you check them out and consider becoming a follower of each of their blogs.

As a GDT with ABC (is that enough acronyms for ya?  LOL), I was asked to create a project using the Cupcake Xmas Lights digital image by Bugaboo Stamps.  The theme for this week's ABC Christmas Challenge is U is for Unused Stash, this can be anything from papers, buttons, ribbon, anything you have unused or unopened.  

For my creation, I chose to create a card and two matching tags.  
I chose also to use the following, never used before, items:
-Christmas Print paper from Cloud9-Harvest Holiday (I have used some of the other prints, but not this particular pattern)
-Gold Foil vellum stickers from Miss Elizabeth ( I have had these for about 7 years . . .how's that for unused stash?  LOL)
-3D Handmade Stickers (Christmas Theme)

Here is my creation:

I would like to enter this project at the following challenges:
Deconstructing Jen DS22

Emerald Faerie Garden - #10 Punches and Dies
