Completely Christmas challenge 19: anything goes

This is my design card for Completely Christmas challenge 19 - please click on the link and see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in with your entries.

For my card I used Bugaboo Stamps 'tree bench' coloured digitally with Microsoft Paint and mounted on to red mirror card .The background paper is an offcut left over from a 12 x 12 from the My Mind's Eye Christmas glitter book. The words panel was upcycled from an old Christmas gift bag, using a piece of lace to cover a fold.
