Recycle it - Polkadoodles

Hello everyone, it's time for a new challenge over at Polkadoodles today. We have been tasked to recycle it and it can be a whole project using recycled things or it can be just a bit of ribbon or lace or paper, I think you know what I mean.

For my project I have used one of those inexpensive mirrors from IKEA, I have seen various ways of changing them and too be honest I did have something in mind but when this challenge came along I decided to make a Christmas themed mirror, I think it will hang in the hall for that last minute glance on the way out, if my friend doesn't want it for her granddaughter.
I have used the backing papers from the Festive Hollybobs collection to cover the main frame, I used some textured gel to make the snow and once again added some glitter. It is a bit of a shame that it doesn't show in the picture as it glistens quite nicely.  I printed out the trees, deer and sleigh which I cut out and placed onto the frame so it looks like they are standing in the snow, I then glittered the trees.  I did cut out some snowflakes from a couple of dies I have but then I found the snowflake buttons and these give a more chunky look which I think suits the project.  The blackboard sentiment is also from Polkadoodles and I have a couple of them so once I get going on my Christmas cards it should be fairly plain sailing.

I'm entering this into
 Sweet Stampin Christmas - Snowflakes
Fab'n'Funky - Christmas
