O Little Town

The current challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown is 'O Little Town' and I made this card with an image from my upcyling box.  The card and paper are from my snippets drawer so I'm also paying another visit to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 4" white silk 
Other: Upcycled Christmas card, star peel-offs, Wink of Stella
Snippets: Gold mirri card, blue snowflake paper

I layered the blue snowflake paper onto gold mirri card and attached it to the card front.   I fussy cut around the village and trimmed it to size before attaching it to the bottom of the card.  I then added the star peel-offs and added a Wink of Stella to the snow.

This is a sweet, peaceful nighttime scene. I can understand why you wanted to upcycle it! The star stickers coordinate nicely with the gold outlines on the town image. Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at 52CCT! I hope you'll join us again soon for another challenge.
