Cute Christmas

Talk about cutting it fine, this is my card for this weeks CD Sunday Challenge, the deadline is 1pm so I have just about made it.

My eldest son, Matt, has just left for the Lake District to do his final expedition for his Silver D of E Award, they are camping for the week and spend three days hiking from one camp site to the next carrying everything they need including tents, cooking equipment etc., rather him than me!

Anyway back to my card, the theme this week is Cute Christmas so I decided to use my Crafter's Companion Humphrey's Corner Christmas Collection CD and chose one of the decoupage images - that's a surprise!

The image and the papers are from the CD, the base card stock is some matt gold mirror card from my stash, the sentiment is also from my stash.  I layered the sentiment on the mirror card and cut the scalloped circle and corners from it as well.

This is the inside of my card, you can also just about see the layers of decoupage:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
