CHNC challenge 229: use some of your favourite things

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 229 - this week I'm simply asking you to use some of your favourite things when you make your Christmas creation - easy peasy ... and, like me, you might then be singing, 'These are a few of my favourite things ...' Hope you can join in the challenge.

For my card I've used quite a few of my favourite things - dry embossing (embossing folder run through the eBosser), patterned paper, particularly these offcuts of My Mind's Eye lost and found Christmas, one of my favourite Christmas stamps by Penny Black, 'chill day', stamping with versafine onyx black and heat embossing with detail black powder, flowers, glitter, alcohol pens (spectrum noir) ... these are just a few of my favourite things.

The glitter on Santa's clothes is from Stamps by Chloe (quite a chunky glitter) and I used some dots of glue pen and Art Institute fine glitter for snowflakes. Robins and poinsettias from Hobbycraft.
