For today's card, I've been recycling the images of an old Christmas card to make a quick Christmas card, since I still have a few to make. I cut them out and glued them onto a strip of green from the same card. I placed this on two overlapping card layers (a birthday present from an unknown brand) that I cut to size and dabbed with some distress ink (Scattered straw). The pearls are done with a Viva Perlen-pen.

For the layout I used this week's sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
