I've made this Christmas card from an upcycled image and snippets.  I hadn't made it with any challenge in mind, but have seen that this month's Sparkles Christmas Challenge is 'Anything Goes'.  I'm also entering it into Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra which has a monthly theme of  'anything goes as long as it's Christmas'.

I die cut the image from the Christmas card and layered it onto a scalloped gold circle.   The star paper was layered onto gold mirri before being attached to a dark blue card blank.   I then attached the image to the centre of the card.  To finish, I added three gold nailheads to the top right and three to the bottom left of the card.

Hi Kath

Brilliant recycling.

Wouldn't that image make a fabulous stamp.

The perfect backing papers too.

Hope your computer is behaving itself now.

Love Jules xx
