CHNC challenge 341

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 341 - 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 ... and we are now getting well into July ... definitely nearer to Christmas 2017 than 2016.

The optional theme for CHNC challenge 341 is 'snowflakes'... but anything  goes as long as it's Christmas.

For my card I stamped the background randomly using a favourite inkadinkadoo stamp inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver powder. The centre 'snowflake' is actually a foiled doily with a couple of the points cut off, using a todo letterpress and hot foil plate. I really wanted to put a sentiment circle in the middle, but hadn't got anything suitable and time was short to make something new, so I found an embossed circle that fitted perfectly and used that.
