CHNC challenge 396

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 396  -  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 'for a man or a boy'

This is a commissioned card for a special dad, using an unknown piece of 8 x 8 background paper with some 3D embellishments from The Works, including the wooden star and heart with hessian and buttons and the cute robins with glittered red breasts. The greeting and 3D Santa were from Anna Griffin.
