Christmas Birds

I made a quick Christmas card by recycling/upcycling a card I received last year.  Old Christmas cards are just too pretty to throw away so I like to re-use/recycle. 

I started with a white card base and affixed green patterned paper, which I tore to look like snow.  I mounted the recycled card image on black cardstock and affixed to the card - voila - finished!
