Good Monday Morning Ladies,
This week's Challenge is a little bit different, we are all encouraged to go Green and recycle, so I thought we could carry that theme over into our crafting.
So this week I would like you to make a project, it doesn't even have to be a card, I would like your project to include something ''Recycled''.
It could be absolutely anything, part of an old card, an embellishment from an old card (I have a draw full of those)!
Old buttons, ribbon from gift packaging. You can decorate bottles,boxes, bags, use packaging, Michele has made lovely card from the patterned cardboard of a tissue box. The possibilities are endless.
My card started out life as a gift bag with ribbon handles, if was given to me by my lovely team mate Mel Hatten (with chocolate and prosecco in)!! I loved the colour of the bag so much I couldn't part with it. When I saw that challenge today I knew straight away what I wanted to use.
I cut the bag apart and used the paper as my background, I ironed the ribbon handles flat and added one to the centre of my card. I used two die cuts (SU Springtime thinlits) shhhh sneak peek!!! at opposite corners of my card and die cut a pretty frame for my sentiment (another sneak peek)!
I used the other ribbon handle for my bow and trimmed it with a silk flower that had no stem. I popped a few pearls here and there and added a die cut flower to the die cut at the top.
I am really pleased with my 'Recycled' card. I can't wait to see what you all come up with.
Have a lovely day my lovelies,
Love and hugs to all,
