Jingle Belles Recycled Card

Well, like I mentioned yesterday here is another card and it is also a Christmas one.  When I saw this challenge at Jingle Belles I knew exactly what I was going to do.  Now the challenge is to recycle an old Christmas card to make a new one.  I keep Christmas cards I get from family and friends for two reasons.  To keep track of who sent me a card and I keep the ones that I especially like in hopes of reusing them somehow.  So, here's my card...

The panel that contains the deer is from one of those cards.  I loved these deer right away and the idea for this card came to me right away.  It's a bit hard to tell but the deer are a gold foil so they don't photograph very well.  I tore the paper to look like a snowy hill and did the same with the panel underneath with the sentiment.  The sentiment is from Fiskars.  I used my unknown bare branch tree again and embossed it in a powder called winter wonderland.  It has sparkles in it.  I love how this card turned out.  I haven't reused my old Christmas cards much and this was fun to do so I think I may do more of this.  I still have them all.  :-)

Well, that's all for now.  Hope everyone has a fabulous week!
