Time to think about Christmas!

It is a few days into August and I am trying to make a start on Christmas cards. I made over 70 last christmas, but left it a bit late to start them and ended up making them late into the night the month before, to make sure they were all done and ready on time.

This year I wanted a card that would be fairly simple to make a put together, but equally quite stylish too - not much to ask is it! So having saved this freebie from last year, I've printed it out in 2 different colours, and matted the image onto green or red mirror card. I've added small flat backed gems to the image in green/red, and am really happy with the way the card has come together. The other bonus is that it is using a stack of A5 cards I have, but never knew what to do with them as I prefer working with square ones.

I think I prefer the green one to be honest, but will make 30 of each to use up the cards and mountain of gems I have.

I'd like to enter these cards into the following challenges:
