Jingle Belles so the current challenge is to use a RECYCLED ELEMENT on a card. For this card I cut the image of the birdhouse, the bow and the glittery snow from two cards I received last year. I fussy cut around the birdhouse and bow, then used a second card and tore the glittery snow from it and adhered it to the base of the birdhouse. I layered the birdhouse and snow onto black cardstock, trimmed around it and then matted this onto a piece of red cardstock. Using a gel pen, I drew in some snowflakes then trimmed the right edge with decorative scissors. Next I attached this to a yellow gingham background and also trimmed the right edge with decorative scissors. I mounted this on a cardbase and then hand cut the blue bird, highlighted it with colored pencils and adhered it to the birdhouse roof. It still looked like it needed something so I hand cut some holly leaves, highlighted them with colored pencils and added some berries. I tucked these into the bird's mouth so it would look like it was "adding" to the decorated house. I played around with various ways to add a sentiment to the front of the card, but it just looked too busy so I'll add a sentiment inside (Warm Winter Wishes).
