"D" is for... at Digital Pencil Too

Hi everyone! Ready for Christmas? I know I'm not although I long for spending it with my family. It always seems to be here too early and preparations are never ready either.
I have one of the many Christmas cards to show you today. Our challenge theme for this week at Mo's DP2 is

Well, I admit I haven't been very creative with this one; so I went for die-cuts, the easiest item to add to a card:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
