March Rudolph Day

It's time for the third Rudolph Day of the year and another upcycled card.  I didn't receive this lovely card - I came across it in our communal recycling bin and thought it would be perfect for upcyling as it's such a good quality card and the sky background is even more beautiful than in the photograph.  I feel like I've cheated with this one as it was a very simple make.

To make this super quick card I trimmed around the front of the card as it was much larger than the front of my card blank, layered it onto gold mirri card and attached it to the card front.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Upcycled Christmas card
     Snippet of gold mirri card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes
     Merry Little Christmas Challenge - Anything Christmas Goes
     Rudolph Day - March Challenge
