Recycling is Good!


LeAnne will be sorry she created a monster with her recycle challenge! This one took NO time at all. I had to create a quick card for a friend today. The banner is from a scrap of rubber matting that my son used to keep one printer from sliding off another in my card area. The lime green paper is from one of my PEO books that he printed for me about 4 years ago (something old). (I could be a recycle hoarder!) The circles were done with the SU Stitched Shape Framelits and the sentiments are from SU's Thoughtful Banners and Dragonfly Dreams stamp sets (something new). 
So, here are the challenges I am entering this in. The color challenge is from Stamp, Ink, Paper #81. Of course, I HAVE to enter it in the PP #326The sketch challenge is from TSOT #304The optional theme was something old and something new...I covered that!


MY CARD!!!!

What can I do to dress up the inside?

Thanks for looking!

  1. Wow, that rubber matting is such a cool idea, especially for a guy card. Embellishments are so hard to find for them. I'm inspired!
