CHNC challenge 315

If you are a 'regular' entrant at my weekly CHNC challenges you'll need to know that from now on I have made some changes that you can read about here. If you haven't taken part in my CHNC challenges before, I'd love to see you there - it makes sense to make Christmas cards throughout the year to avoid panic towards Christmas. That's why I started my CHNC weekly challenges six years ago (can't believe it's been six years).

So CHNC challenge 315 this week is 'anything goes as long as it's Christmas' with the optional theme of 'clean and simple'.

This is my first card, which is one that I made before Christmas, along with lots of other similar ones, when I didn't have much time left, so the cards had to be clean and simple!

The  image is a pre-coloured topper from Elisabeth Bell's lovely collection, mounted on to matt gold mirror cut on the Scan n Cut. Paper is Memory box yuletide.

This is also for Paper sweeties inspiration challenge 51:
