CHNC challenge 57: just make it square

It's time for a new challenge on my CHNC blog:

This is an easy challenge - all you have to do is make a square Christmas card. Please go over to CHNC challenge 57 for further details and to enter your card. And there's a great sponsored prize up for grabs too!

For my card I've followed the sketch for CPS 252:

 For Jingle belles 'a banner holiday' I've used the colours of their blog header and lots of glitter.

I've used Craftime red glitter paper, some lovely sparkly organza aqua and silver ribbon in the centre and a recycled image from a Christmas card received that was too good to put in the recycling bin.

This is also for:

Dare to be sassy Thursday 109: Christmas/winter
Crimbo crackers 7: for a child
Stamps R us: just kidding around
Whimsy 23: pearls or bling
Deep ocean 17: sparkle
Heart song 32: red and white and/or ribbon
Dream valley 24: animals
Blog-a-doodle: include an animal
Pollycraft 124: warm it up
Freshly brewed 80: snow/winter
Little red wagon 117: winter wonderland
Jellypark friends: winter wonderland
Gingerloft 32: let it snow
Secret crafter Saturday 170: ribbons
Do you stack up 56 ribbons
Stamp, scrap & doodle: anything goes
Bizzy Becs January: anything goes
Victorine: anything goes
Simon says: anything goes
