Car Trouble Tuesday

Good afternoon peeps.  I am having an unexpectedly day off work today as the car is in the garage being fixed, serviced and MOT'd (sadly it has failed on first attempt).  Luckily the garage is just round the corner of the house, which was really handy yesterday as I had to give a call to jump-start Wilma, the car! (That's her name ...lol)   So to take my mind off what the final bill is going to be I am having a wee play at my table in between jobs about the house and so far I have done this clean & simple Christmas card.

The image is from a clear stamp set from Penny Black.  Snowflake embossing folder from Cuttlebug.  Snowflake punch from Martha Stewart.  I inked all the edges with a light brown chalk ink.  The challenges covered are:-
