CHNC challenge extra for October 2017

This is my design card for my CHNC challenge extra for October 2017 - please click on the link to see the inspirational designs by my team and we hope you will join in our challenge.

Now that we are beginning October, it's time to be a bit more serious about Christmas designs - I hope you will be able to join in our October challenge. ... it can be any creation as long as it's for Christmas and you can enter as many times as you wish.

The background card is from a Hunkydory kit bought long ago and the other elements are from an unknown kit that I'm still dipping into sometimes.

Bugaboo Stamps always generously sponsor my CHNC challenge extra and provide images for the team to use and showcase. The image I've used is Christmas jar, a pre-coloured one. I used papers from my Christmas offcuts box, a couple of felt stockings and the sentiments.The background paper has lovely sparkly snowflakes.

This is also for:
