Christmas labels

Me and my neighbour have been to a Christmas gift party tonight and I bought five jars of home made chutney-and did a lot of tasting in the process! One which I bought for the OH is Beetroot, cabbage and horseradish relish - I know he is going to love it, I didn't hate it but it's not to my taste as I don't like beetroot or horseradish!
Anyway, I have found time to get crafty and make this Christmas card. All the paper and card I have used is SU. I cut with nestie labels number 2 and used the Waltzingmouse stamp that fits the label, I then used the SU Dasher stamp and embossed with sparkly Gold embossing powder. The sentiment is from a Creative Expressions Christmas set of stamps. All mounted on a "postage" card from Cardcraft plus. I've left decoration as such to a minimum as I think this will be a male Christmas card.
I'd like to enter the card into Waltzingmouse challenge- sketch and Papertake Weekly Challenge-Christmas crackers.

Hi Linby, something so very nice about this card. The nesties look so nice. And the gold embossing looks so glam.

Happy chutney eating,
