CHNC challenge 107: Rudolph is resting

Those of you who follow my blog and my CHNC challenges might remember that the challenge for last week was 'Santa has gone into hiding' - well, this week CHNC challenge 107 is 'Rudolph is resting' - make any Christmas card that doesn't feature Rudolph or any other reindeer.

CHNC challenge has three sponsors, one of which is Bugaboo Stamps who kindly supplied an image called 'snow friends window' which I printed out and coloured with copics. The background paper on my A5 card is Basic Grey Dasher 'flannel shirt' - I used two offcuts that have been in my Christmas box for some time - I didn't have a piece that would cover the whole card front, but it was good that I knew I was going to use ribbons across the card so they filled the gap between the two offcuts. The paper behind the image is another from my offcuts box, this time from Docrafts.

My card is based on Freshly made sketches 68:
Ribbons and buttons from stash:
