Inchies/Twinchies and Recycle'Freebies

The Jingle Belles challenge this week was to use either Inchies or Twinchies on your card, while CraftyHazelnuts challenge wanted to use either a freebie or something recycled. I have used 1 inch squares of Papermania holly paper and backed them with some holographic squares that I cut out of a gift bag which had contained a lovely bottle of wine and some chocolates, which my dear friend Elaine had given me for Christmas.

I've arranged the inchies into the shape of what I hope resembles a Christmas Tree - loved both the challenges and the fact that I have another six cards ready for this years big event!

I love your inchie tree! What a great idea. And I think it was wonderful to repeat the ivy in the corners to match the paper.
