Christmas Home

'Christmas Home' is the name of the Teresa Collins background paper that I've used for this card. The main image is one recycled from a card received - the holly berries have been glittered - backed on to red card and the spiked circle was also recycled from another card and matted on to another nestie die cut. The little 'merry Christmas' sentiment is one that has been in my Christmas sentiments box for ages. The strip of black gems were from Poundland.

This was based on the square sketch for Mojo Monday 274:
