Fa La La La La

I love to recycle old Xmas cards.  I save them all, and I've got quite a stock pile!  Here's a card I made with the image from a card I received a few years ago. 

I affixed a panel of patterned paper on a white card base and stamped the sentiment and swirls in black.  I mounted the image on black cardstock and affixed to the card - and voila, finished!  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  Sentiment and swirls (Studio G)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • DP:  Unknown from my stash
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • White Card Base:  Domtar
