A Christmas card !!!!!

hi all
I know ,yes its a christmas card ,i thought i would make a card for a new challenge blog called,its nice to make a christmas card because i want to not because i have to....and hey i might just get organised for next year early instead of leaving it too late.
the theme for hazels challenge is  to use something you have had for free or recycle something ,so i used the beautiful my minds eye papers i won from hazel herself and a beautiful free digi called "hollie" from a great site called little musings,this talented lady gives her fab work away for free and they are gorgeous digi's to work with.the gold button was from an old cardigan too so i fit both categories .....check me out!!!! i followed the sketch over at friday sketchers blog too
