CHNC challenge extra for April

This is my card for my CHNC challenge extra for April. Please click on the link to see the wonderful designs of the rest of my team and we would love you to join in our challenge ... anything goes as long as it's Christmas ... and, if you think it's crazy making Christmas cards now, just think, a quarter of the year has already gone ... it makes sense to avoid panic towards the end of the year.

For my card I used Bugaboo Stamps Raggey Angel - Lay on Star which I coloured digitally in Microsoft Paint - Bugaboo are always sponsors of my CHNC challenge extras - I am so grateful to them. The background was created by printing a digital paper found on the internet. The poinsettia flowers mounted on kraft were from Poundland. Corrugated strip and gold foil strips from stash.

This is also for:
