Yesterday when I was planning my card for the CHNC Challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do, cut all the backing papers and rummaged in my stash for the Christmas image I wanted to do.  I laid it all out on the card and knew instantly that it didn't work ..... back to the drawing board and I did the card I blogged about yesterday.

I woke in the middle of the night last night and then couldn't get back to sleep because I knew precisely which card I needed to recycle.  All I could see in my mind was the large red snowflake but I don't think I would have been flavour of the month if I had got up and rummaged through the stash to found it and then gone downstairs to make it!!!!

So here we have the final card with some paper I bought over 5 years ago and a piece of silver card that I ran through the Cuttlebug, topped by the big red snowflake!!!!
