Christmas gang challenge - freebie papers

It was my turn to choose the challenge for tomorrow for the Christmas gang (there's a list of us on my sidebar - if you'd like to know more and perhaps join us, just get in touch with one of us).

I asked everyone to make a card using something recycled or something that was a freebie with a magazine or in a swap or RAK etc.

For my card I used papers by Nancy Watts from the current Making Cards magazine. The poinsettia in the middle is decoupaged. I very lightly distressed the edges of the card with brown corduroy DI to give a bit of definition.

I'm also linking this for:
