Jingle Belles rock the Mojo Monday Sketch

Keeping up with my desire not to be scrambling in November I've made another card for Jingle Belles rock challenge blog. Since this is Monday I saw the new Mojo Monday sketch this morning and deamed it perfect for what I had planned.  The current challenge at Jingle Belles is Peace on Earth Day which is to use something recycled or upcycled, I will show you my card first then explain.

I love my Impression Obsession trees and deer dies and really wanted to use my newest die set from Elizabeth Crafts Designs the stitched ovals. Now on to my recycle item......

I had fun picking up some wallpaper and paint samples and this green sample just seemed to be perfect to cut trees. although it looks brown in the picture it is a forest green and very easy to cut so this is my recycle item I used.

Here is a close up and it does show the trees a better green colour

Finished inside
