CHNC challenge 313: use a sentiment

It seems impossible that it's now Christmas Eve! I expect there are others, like me, who had to make some simple, quick Christmas cards recently because time was running out ... I make Christmas cards throughout the year, but the problem for me is that I sell to raise money for charity and then I need to quickly make more for us to send. Perhaps you've made cards recently and not had a chance to blog them yet - I'd love to see them entered into my challenges.

So this is one of the cards that I'm showing for my CHNC challenge 313: use a sentiment. The image is a lovely pre-coloured Elisabeth Bell topper. Because I wanted to make quick cards I cut quite a few circles etc on my Scan n cut and used them for matting. The background paper is Basic Grey, the lovely 3D felt bell was from The Works and washi tape from Christmas stash.
