CHNC challenge 350

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 350 - 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 we are now getting well into September already.

The optional theme for CHNC challenge 350 is 'add some flowers or foliage'... but anything  goes as long as it's Christmas.

For my card I used some sparkly, shiny Papermania Christmas background paper (purchased a few years ago) - offcut left over from a 12 x 12 paper. The lovely Robyn's Fetish image, penguin Paul sleighing, was coloured with spectrum noir pens and mounted on to an upcycled piece of foiled card. The strip of embossed card beneath it was from my offcuts box. Glittered poinsettias were from Hobbycraft (need to get some more ... if they still sell them).
