Christmas blessings

Yet another Christmas cards - actually, I said I would do some more crafty sorting today ... and all I've done so far is make some Christmas cards - that's because I've come across some recycled bits that I'd saved, so I'm making cards as I go (but not much sorting happening really - lol!).

So here is the card with another recycled image, this time using sketch 2 for 52 Christmas card throwdown:

 Papers are offcuts of MME Lost and found Christmas and some free paper from a magazine, mounted on a dark brown card blank. So this is another one for Pixie's crafty snippets 6.

Colours are for Colour create 89 - lights or creams, light browns and dark browns:

It's also for:

365 cards 343: mismatched - two different patterned papers you would not normally use together
So artful 2: Georgia O'Keeffe inspiration - the sepia look
the pixie cottage 106: clean and simple
Paper sundaes 106: clean and simple
Papertake weekly: anything goes
52 card pick up 5
Make it Monday 75
Inspire me Fridays 44
