Recycled Christmas

This takes me back to my roots of cardmaking - I started off making Christmas cards one January from the recycled parts of the Christmas cards which were too good to bin!! This charming little fella started life as a gift tag, the sentiment tag I think came off a gift set and the bow and baubles came off a cracker. The BP and mirri card were from my bit box.
Challenges entered:
Jingle Belles - recycle/reuse
Sparkles Forum - ribbons and gems
