CHNC challenge 345

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 345 - please click on the link to see what it's all about and I hope you will join in with the challenge - it makes sense to get on with Christmas creations while there is plenty of time to enjoy doing so without any panic ... although time is rushing by because by the end of this challenge we will be into August!

The optional theme for CHNC challenge 345 is '3 of something'... but anything  goes as long as it's Christmas.

For my card I used quite a few 3s:

3 caroling hedgehogs (stamp by Penny Black)
3 spectrum noir pens to colour the image
3 papers from Winterland paper pad by fancypants
3 punched snowflakes
3 gems
3 felt buttons
