CHNC challenge 292: anything goes as long as it's Christmas

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 292 - please click on the link to find out what it's all about - there are four prizes to be won this week and the theme is 'anything goes as long as it's Christmas' - so, it's easy peasy!

I used the lovely coloured image from Bugaboo Stamps called 'Christmas bird 001'. The backing paper and the one used to mat the image is a double sided piece from a K & Co Christmas 12 x 12 (can't remember what it's called). I used a piece of Kanban striped card wrapped with some Crafty ribbons grosgrain 'stockings hanging' ribbon and a sentiment and three little 3D flowers from Crafts House.

I based the card on the sketch given for Atlantic Hearts 170:
