CHNC challenge 322

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 322 - please click on the link to see what it's all about and I hope you will join in with the challenge - it makes sense to get on with Christmas creations while there is plenty of time to enjoy doing so without any panic. The challenge is anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the option of recycling/upcycling.

I used the Die'sire edge'ables Christmas only words 'peace on earth' to die cut on to a piece of blank card, on to which I added the lovely gold manger scene with the embossed black image - this was rescued and upcycled from an old card that had been received a couple of years ago. I stuck the die cut black card on to some matt mirror gold card and used some remaining snippets of this to punch out the stars.
