Recycled Christmas card

Here is a Christmas card with a recycled cut and made with scraps.   The dove was on the front of a card we received last year and it was so pretty that I saved it.  I cut it out and popped it on this card.

Christmas cards are ones I end up re-purposing too - so many of them have gorgeous elements like this dove! I love the embossing, and the greys suit the sparkle so well :)
