Recycled card from Ferrero rocher wrapper and wall paper sample

Hello bloggers,

I would like to share this card that I made for my charity card sale.

The Christmas tree has been die cut from a Ferrero Rocher chocolate wrapper on my Sizzix  and the bottom bit with the orange and gold squiggly design is an old sample of wall paper.

The distressed effect was done by Zeenya with rusty hinge distress ink and I stamped a Hero Art design block on it. The gold cord and the ribbon are from my stash.

I know it is just an ordinary Christmas card but it is recycled and that makes me happy... atleast I am trying to save the earth in my own little way.

It sold off at the sale today at Zeenya's school. I will do a new post of the sale soon. Been a hectic day for me. My mum left today so it is a bit quiet at home. Thank God for my new companion - my blog. It makes me smile and gives me so much joy. I have met such wonderful people here - all so warm and encouraging. And I have learned so much too.

I am going to submit this card for Michelle's Monday Linky party.

Wow Monica, this is gorgeous and I love that you recycled the wrapper from the candy - clever idea! I see you have been making some beautiful Christmas cards and so happy that 40 of your 66 sold! I am not surprised - they are so delightful; they will bring much joy to those receiving them from those that purchased them! I love seeing that cute picture of your baby - she is absolutely ADORABLE!! What a cutie! How fun to have two darlings with you while you craft - no wonder your cards come out so beautifully!
