CHNC challenge 552

This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 552 -  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 twine or ribbon'.

For my card I used a DL tent opening card blank on to which I adhered some red mirror card. I embossed a piece of green adorable scoreable from Hunkydory using the lovely holly and berries slimline die from Lisa Horton, using some silver gems that I coloured red with an alcohol marker for the berries, having wrapped some twine around and added the sentiment from one of Lisa Horton's festive word sheets.
