CHNC challenge 550

This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 550 -  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  'use some red'.

I embossed some red mirror card using a large folder that I've had for ages (cut from the same piece as used for CHNC challenge 549 for last week), adding the grosgrain ribbon, the sentiment and the wooden skates from The Works (a couple of years ago).

Colour for The rainbow card challenge 31: charmingly cherry:
