CHNC challenge 367

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 367 - please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of recycle or use something old. 

There's some exciting news on the challenge blog this week- I'm being joined by six ladies who are making up my first Design Team, having run the challenge blog for seven years by myself.

The topper on my card is upcycled from a card received a couple of years ago. I mounted this on an offcut of mirror card that had been embossed using the lovely Embossalicious star of wonder folder (unfortunately, it doesn't show up here like it does irl), adding the peel off greeting, mounted on to a matt silver card blank.

This is also for:
