CHNC challenge 566

This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 566 -  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  'make your own background'.

I created the background for my card using the lovely slimline pine cones 3D embossing folder from Lisa Horton, blending gilding blush old gold over the pine cones, matting on to a piece of pearlescent gold card and adding the cute 3D felt reindeer from The Works and the Merry Christmas sentiment, adding on to a DL card blank.
