Ebony Christmas

It's time for another challenge at Christmas Crafts All Year Round and we want to see 'Non-traditional Colours'.  I'm a little late in posting my card as the new month has crept up on me and, as usual when I'm short of time, I've dipped into my box of upcycled cards to find a suitable image.  I'm entering the Alphabet Challenge 'E for Ebony', the Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes' and The Merry Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes + Christmas'.

Card blank: 5" x 4" white matt
Image: Upcycled Christmas card
Card: Gold matt
Other: Wink of Stella

To make this super quick card, I trimmed the image, layered it onto gold card, attached it to the card blank and added a Wink of Stella.  It was so quick to make I feel like I've cheated, but the image was too beautiful not to use!
