CHNC challenge 108: recycle or use something free

Today's CHNC challenge 108 is to use something recycled or something that was free. This is my first card for that.

The lovely bauble on my card was part of a card with an M & S gift card - far too good to waste. The leaves at the top of the bauble were retrieved from a Christmas cracker - I have to confess that I bought the crackers with the thought of being able to recycle bits of them (more to come!) - and the good thing is that they were half price.

The silver and blue mirror card panel was from my offcuts box, mounted on to an A5 dark navy blue cardblank.
