CHNC challenge 353

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 353 - please click on the link to see what it's all about and I hope you will join in with the challenge.  It seems unbelievable that tomorrow is 1 October ... we need to seriously get on with those Christmas designs now.

The optional theme for CHNC challenge 353 is 'black and white and one other colour'... but anything  goes as long as it's Christmas.

For my card I used the lovely Inkadinkadoo reindeer stamp, inked with versafine onyx black and heat embossed with detail black powder.. Various offcuts were used, including the piece of embossed shiny black card. The greeting tag was from an unknown set I purchased long ago and the little black flowers were cut from some sticky ribbon.
