CHNC challenge 123: let's get sentimental (use a sentiment)

Can you believe that it's May already - more than a third of the year gone already. If you haven't started on your Christmas cards yet then this might be a good time to join in with my CHNC challenge 123 - all you've got to do is make sure there is a sentiment on the front of your card - easy peasy!

The background paper is an offcut of Graphic 45 'Carol of the bells'. The image is a combination of 'Charlie Christmas bear' and 'Christmas word art' kindly supplied by one of the sponsors of CHNC challenge 123Robyn'sFetish Digital Stamps And More, which I coloured digitally in Paint.

The sparkly glittered holly ribbon was bought a few years ago - over the months I seem to have used plenty of it and there's still lots left. The bell is a wooden sentiment that was free with a magazine, coloured with copics. The sentiment was computer generated.

This is also for:
