Recycled card

Hello kind peeps,

Here is a card made with a recycled image from a super market brochure. The snowflakes border is from the same brochure as well. All I did was to layer the image on to a gold paper and add a ribbon along with lots of scoring on the top and bottom of the card. 


Aleeza had her Christmas concert yesterday but I could not take pictures as she was too far. Here is a shot of her friend and her with lights in their hands. The money from the sale of these lights will go to the Philippines.

The evening was called The Festival of Lights and down below is a display created by older children made out of milk cartons.

I will enter this card in:

Wish you a wonderful Tuesday,

What a terrific card Monica…well done on recycling. Gingerbread men are on a lot of my Christmas cards I made this year. Such fun. Looks like Aleeza is having a wonderful time and love that little city the kids made. Thanks for sharing the card with us at Unstampabelles for our Christmas challenge.
