Starting the year off with some recycling

Hello all!  I have kinda made a silent resolution to do more Christmas card recycling this year.  I have 3 people at work giving me their cards, plus all the ones we have received over the last few years...I better get busy!  Here is the first of many ( I hope!):
I swiped this card off a bulletin board at work before someone could throw it away...I couldn't pass up that pretty country church!  I used the current Sketch Saturday sketch to get this card going.  I found a designer paper that I thought matched the colors in the picture well (mainly the dark blue).  Matted the picture on dark blue cardstock, and adhered all of that to my 5.5" square card base that was embossed with a Sizzix large dot embossing folder.  Here is a pic of the sketch:
Well, that's all for me tonight.  Tomorrow evening, I will look for more challenges to enter this into. 
Take care, and God Bless!


  1. I found this sketch a bit too challenging, but wow do I love your version with recycled Christmas card! Feels so cozy and peaceful. Lovely!

  2. I am super impressed with your re-cycling job! This is an incredible card! Thanks for joining us at Sketch Saturday!
