CHNC challenge 356

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 356 - please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of traditional Christmas colours.

The background paper is from Dovecraft's Magic of Christmas paper pad. The  piece across the middle is an offcut from Red Christmas paper from The Works, left over when making the previous card. The striped border pieces are from an old Kanban kit (the edges are gold foiled, although here they look more like black). A Kanban greeting from a kit purchased some years ago was mounted on to a Dovecraft Glad Tidings doiley.
