Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

 Over at the Crafty Hazelnut Christmas Weekly Challenge Hazel is challenging us to "upcycle, repurpose or use a freebie".  For my House House card the backing paper isn't backing paper but in fact ...............
the packaging that one of my embossing folders came in for Christmas.  Well it's a shame for it to go to waste!!!  The House Mouse decoupage I've had for some time now and thought I can't keep looking at it and it must be used.  This year I want to try and make more cards throughout the year rather than from September onwards so I shall try and enter Hazel's challenge as often as I can.

I have finished the card off with some ribbon, die-cut snowflakes inked with Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass distress ink and an Inkylicious brush, sentiments from the decoupage sheet and some pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Upcycle, repurpose or use a freebie
Crafty Calendar - Let's celebrate
Crafty Hazenlnut's Christmas Challenge Extra - Anything goes
Christmas Card Challenge - No colouring
Kaboodle Doodle - Let it snow
Tuesday Throwdown - Snowman fun
Simon Says - Ice inspiration
ABC Christmas - A is for anything Christmas

2 Creative Chicks - Anything goes
