Upcycled ornament ...

....  Good morning!  I've a clean, simple Christmas card to share with you this morning.  I'm submitting it to the following challenges:

Happy Christmas - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Woodgrain; Dare 2B Artzy - Owl Be Home for Xmas
Inks: Stampin' Up! - White Pigment, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: SU Card - Crumb Cake; White Lustre Card; Ornament and Ribbon Upcycled


The challenge at Merry Monday is to use kraft or slate grey on your card, while at Jingle Belles the team would like us to recycle/repurpose something on our card.  I made the card base from Crumb Cake and stamped the wood grain pattern in white pigment ink; I like the soft look of weathered wood.  I saved this big ornament from one of last year's Christmas cards and it's been on my desk since then.  It it the perfect size for the card and as I also saved the ribbon, it didn't need anything else added.  On the inside I cut a panel of white card, stamped a sentiment in red (to match the robin's breast) and some snowflakes.

I do hope everyone is enjoying this Easter weekend.  We were out at a Baby Shower yesterday - such fun!  And the weather was nice to us.  Today we're going out for a drive and will be taking photos - the perfect way to spend a day.  See you soon.
