CHNC challenge 276: colour: green

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 276: colour: green - a little or a lot. I'm so happy to see crafters joining in my challenges week by week - perhaps you haven't started yet on your Christmas designs - why not start this week and enter my challenge so we can all see what you make.

The only thing I bought for my card is the card blank and the four hessian flowers with bead centres - they came from Poundland some time ago. The rest of the card was made with pieces that were rescued from old cards and upcycled. The red and white striped background is shiny and the wreath and sentiment circle are glittered.

This is also for:
