CD Sunday Challenge - 'Twas the night before Christmas

This fortnight the challenge at the Cd Sunday Challenge blog is 'Twas the night before christmas by Jocelyn.
I found this charming image on the Joanna Sheens Enchanted Christmas CD 2,  (I felt it fitted the challenge well)  I used the matching backing paper and matted the image on silver card.  I made a bow and left a long length of ribbon and made a bow on the other end then twisted it and glued the bows on each end of the image.   I used the new dies cuts which I won off Facebook from Trimcraft and cut them out of green glitter card from the Works,  the holly garland and the holly leaves and placed red gems in for the berries.  Finishing off with a peel off Merry Christmas.  I kept this card flat as it will be for posting.
I hope you will not only visit the CD Sunday Challenge site,  remember if you want to enter the challenge you must use something from a CD no matter how small and let us know which CD you used.  Here is a link to CD Sunday Challenge blog  we would be pleased to see you.  
I want to thank those who have sent some wonderful messages,  my husband who was rushed into Hosptial last Tuesday is now improving and maybe home midweek,  it's been a roller coaster of a week,  but you know who your friends and family are when you need them.  It's come at the wrong time of the year and I will be so happy to get him home.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend
