Seasons greetings

Every year I save some of the Christmas cards I receive because I think elements of them will be perfect to reuse.  The bird panels on this card are salvaged from a previous Christmas card.  They were way too beautiful to throw away.  I used the Viva La Verve May week 3 sketch, the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #72 to use traditional Christmas colors (red and green) and the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge to use any type of animal, bird, or bug on your project.  The papers are all from a DCWV Christmas pack and the sentiment is from Verve's "Ornamental Christmas".
