CHNC challenge 348

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 348 - 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 ... although time is rushing by because by the end of this challenge we will be into September already.

The optional theme for CHNC challenge 348 is 'use something old'... but anything  goes as long as it's Christmas.

For my card I used one of my oldest Christmas stamps and one that I still count as a favourite, Santa collage by Rubber Stampede. I inked with black versafine and embossed with black detail powder. The papers are some that I've had for some years. The bright washi tape is from stash.
