Christmas couple

The current challenge over at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge is 'For a Couple', plus Sarn is hostessing Rudolph Day right now. It would be very rude not to join in the fun:
 I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- image rescued and 'upcycled' from a card sent to us last Christmas, luckily it was already on a sticky pad and just gently peeled off ready to use again

- backing paper from the Marianne Design 'Merry Little Christmas' paper pack - I hunted through every single sheet of backing paper here to find a green to go with the greens in the image

- white card edged using MS hearts punch, topped with red satin mirri board and the top corners rounded

- sentiment by Craftwork Cards, mounted onto a red satin mirri board oval, punched using SU oval punch

- white satin ribbon with iridescent edge (Hobbycraft) and a 'Joy' charm tied on with a bow of white iridescent cord

Hope you all had a good Bank Holiday, weather wasn't good here and typically the sun is gonna shine today.
