The first of Christmas

I really didn't expect to be making a Christmas card so soon but as I have a pile of cards to recycle and CraftHazelnut's challenge was for something recycled for a Christmas card, I thought I really shouldn't put them away before making something.

I have cut a snowy image from a card and mounted it on some red paper.  I have then used my Fiskars Mini-Boss to emboss some holly leaves in the corner.  I have then used Stickles on them and added holly berries used Liquid Pearls.  Finally I added a greeting at the bottom.

I have entered this in the following challenges:

The Sisterhood of Crafters:  Let it snow/Winter card
Creative Card Crew:  #1 Snowy Day
ABC Christmas challenge:  A for Anything Christmas
CHNC Challenge #54: Give it a new lease of life
Tuesday throwdown: Baby its cold outside
