Very first LOTV card!

After recently getting my very first Lili of the Valley stamps i thought I'd join in with the LOTV challenge {you don't need to use their stamps but i wanted too}
This week there is a recipe:
3 Papers, 2 Stamps, 1 Type of Embellishment
I went for the 3 yummy BG papers {a couple of which i machine stitched the edges}, 2 lotv teds which i coloured with copics and 1 old crimbo candle ornament {which i recycled for the flower and holly leaves}
The sentiment is an acrylic tile matted onto a punched out surround with brads.
...
A quick close up...
Isn't he just darling.. i used picket fence distress stickles on the hat and rock candy DS on the star.
This also ticks the boxes to join in with this weeks Fun with shapes with their theme 'Recycling'
