Holiday Card 23 - R for Red and Recycle

Hi, everybody!  Today I have another holiday card to share! I've been having fun this month being inspired by the alphabet prompts over at Beccy's Place - she is having her sixth annual Month of Holiday Cards ChallengeDay 20 is "R" and I went with Red and Recycle!


The precious kitten image is actually a recycled tag that we received on a gift bag two years ago (the handwritten to, from, and date are on the reverse side).  You can see the little hole above the kitten's hat, where the ribbon was tied, but I adhered a tiny white scrap behind the hole so it's hardly noticeable.  I mounted the tag on some leftover scraps, stamped a cute sentiment, and adhered to the embossed background (Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow).

I would also like to support the following challenges: Allsorts CAS Christmas 1/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper November UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Beginning with "H" (hat, holiday) UE; Creatalicious AG Optional Layer it Up UE; DL.ART November Linky AG UE 1/d; Just Keep on Creating November AG UE; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 3/3; Pile it On Pets UE; Simon Says Stamp Monday Let it Snow 2/5; SUYP Cats Only November Furrything Goes UE

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Super cute way to reuse that tag. It is a darling one and looks right at home with the card you made.

What a cute little kitten! Great idea to upcycle the fabulous tag Kitty, it has made a beautiful Christmas card. Love the embossed background, the cute sentiment and the strip of red and white paper. I also like the multiple mats you added under the image. Lovely.
Cheers,
Beccy
