CHNC challenge 87: for a couple

It seemed a good idea when I chose the theme for today's CHNC challenge 87: for a couple, but when I came to make the card I didn't really know what to do ... and I left it till last evening, which wasn't a good idea really and I was tired and didn't much feel like making anythying.

Anyway, in the end I decided to use some of a Hunkydory kit and I created the circle with the snowflakes edge with a punch that was delivered today. It is a We R Memory Keepers mini 8 punch - I saw it on QVC earlier in the week and couldn't resist it (and there's also a flower one too, which I hope to use soon).

The card blank is 8 x 8 because the snowflake circle is made from a 6 x 6 paper.

I bought a new camera today and charged it in time to use it to take a photo of my card - I haven't looked at the instructions, just switched it on and clicked, so it's not a wonderful photo and it's hard to get one with all the gold foiling anyway.
