CHNC challenge extra for March

Today is 1 March and that means that two months of this year have gone already. There are lots of 'crafty' crafters who are getting ahead with their Christmas cards to ease the panic that tends to happen towards the end of the year. There were lots of entries for last month's challenge and I hope that many will join in with CHNC challenge extra for March, where 'anything goes' as long as it's Christmas. Please click on the link and see the gorgeous crafting of the rest of the team, including my guest for the month. If you've never joined in before, don't be shy ... please come and join us and have the reward of starting to build up a stock of Christmas cards ahead of time.

The challenges on CHNC challenge extra blog are always sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps - the randomly chosen prize winner gets to choose $21 worth of digital images. Bugaboo kindly supplied images for the team to use and for my card I've used 'AKV Nativity Mary Joseph' which I coloured digitally using Microsoft Paint. I mounted the image on to a piece of gold mirror card and then on to some Christmas script paper that I've had for ages that originally came with a magazine. This was then mounted on to gold mirror before matting on to the dark brown card blank. The card was finished off with the glitter ribbon and the sentiment square.

I based the card on the sketch given for Digi sketch 'glitter it' challenge:
