52 Christmas Card Throwdown

This week the challenge is to make a card using an old sketch. Delving into the archives I decided on this one from May 2013

I used spellbinder dies to cut the cream and brown centrepiece and used a cheap nasty stamp from a magazine.....the quality is so bad when you stamp with it! Anyway, I coloured in with markers and mounted onto cardstock with a couple of old Stampin Up paper scraps. I'm determined to use this pack of paper up before this Christmas! A gold thread bow and sentiment to finish.
