CHNC challenge 254

My CHNC challenge 254 has started this morning and this week I'm asking to see bright or sparkly colours on your Christmas creations. It's a busy time for crafters now that Christmas is looming within our sights, so, if you make anything for Christmas, please share it if it fits the challenge ... and don't forget that you can share anything for Christmas on my CHNC challenge extra for November - hope to see you there. And, if you've used any patterned paper, then we would love you to enter our Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper November challenge.

So here is my hard for CHNC challenge 254 using some of the lovely colourful and sparkly papers from the DCWV NOEL holiday glitzy glitter stack (there's one being given away as one of the four prizes this week) kindly supplied by Die Cuts With a View. I used an A5 tent style card.

The photo doesn't do the card justice because the oval picture is actually underneath an acetate layer that was taken from the cover of the stack - this was too good to waste:

 I covered up the writing with a strip of the striped glittered red and white paper and then turned it sideways, sticking down on the right had side, but leaving the acetate part open on the left. The little reindeer is stuck on to the outside of the acetate, as is the greeting and the poinsettias.

This is also for:

We just started a new one and we would like for you to link with us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Colossians 2:6-7 which tells us, "So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." Have a wonderful week...
