Christmas Card Club - "Off the Wall"

Good morning all.

Zoe has given us girls the rather zany theme of "Off the Wall" this time at our little Christmas Card club.
I recycled one of last years Christmas cards to make this.

Eldest had asked for some cards for his brother and sister just before he left for Australia last year, as I had no spares I bought a pack of three at the garden centre. I decided to recycle them to make a card for him for this year!

The image was die cut then simply matted and layered with the smallest meercat being decoupaged. Backing paper from Papermania...still stash busting here!! Wooden Noel is from the Works.

If you'd like to see the other girl's makes you'll find links in my sidebar.

I'll be back later with some stencil inspiration for STAMPlorations Mixed Media Challenge.
