I have used four wonderful new dies to make this card.
Staring with the Bead Adapt-a-Background die. By leaving the die cut intact, it creates a subtle texture bg. Tomorrow I have a card showing it used in a different way!
The Patchwork Ornaments were die cut in pattern Christmas paper and the hangers were cut in gold mirror. Love the stitching on these! 
The tops of the ornaments were embellished with pine sprigs from the Wreath Builder die set and gold thread bows.
The font on the Joy die is so elegant and cuts beautifully...like butter!

Thanks for looking and see you back tomorrow for Day 2!
