O little town of Bethlehem

This is a card I made last night, using the front aperture of a card received a couple of years ago and a picture from another one that I put underneath this. The addition of a piece of white and gold backing paper from my offcuts box and the card was complete.

This is another card for my CHNC challenge 40: for a male (if you haven't yet discovered my Christmas blog, please hop over there - I'd love to see you join in).
