Upcycled Christmas scene

I saved this lovely little manger scene off a card I received and have recycled/upcycled it into a card using this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday. The blue and yellow layers are snippets, and the stars are stickers.

The card is for these challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday #98
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge #298 -- use yellow
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra -- anything Cheistmas
CRAFT Challenge #381 -- Christmas
Word Art Wednesday #248 -- anything goes


  1. Brilliant bit of re/upcycling with this lovely image.
    You will need to add an image of the sketch to your post to be eligible for the prize.
    Thank you for playing along with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

  2. What an adorable recycled card. Genius use of older cards. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Heide SSW2-DT

  3. This is very nice and perfect way to use that sketch. I chuckled about the "upcycling" because when did recycling become UPcycling? Now then do we sometimes downcycle (take something used and make something lousy with it)?

  4. What a pretty design. Thank you for sharing with us at the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge. - Myrna DT

  5. Thanks for entering both of my CHNC challenges with your lovely crafting - hope to see you again soon. x
