Anything goes for the Christmas Card Club challenge

Sylvie has chosen 'anything goes' to ease the Christmas Card Club ladies into the New Year (thank you, Sylvie). I've chosen to make another card using upcycled pieces from a Christmas card received and a couple of items from Christmas crackers. If you'd like to know about the Christmas Card Club please get in touch and I'll point you in the right direction.

The background card is Hunkydory. The middle square with the foiled and glittery big snowflakes was from a Christmas card we received (too good to put into the paper recycling box), which I matted on to a piece of silver mirror card. The two white trees with silver foiling were from the fronts of two Christmas crackers.

So this is another card for my own CHNC challenge 158 - click on the link, please, to learn more about this and join in with your own creation.

Thoroughly enjoyed making my rounds, and am thinking about what to ready for the next one, so I don't miss it! TFS & Hugs.
