Recycle that paper!

It is always fun to incorporate recyled items into card making. It is just one of my many efforts to save adding items from our big landfill. I thank Stampendous for offering such a great challenge that incorporates some recyling items into their sketch challenge this week.

Here I used a piece of a box that had been damaged as the center piece of the background and accenting it with glitter and the lining of a couple security envelopes. Using the Stampendous flower flourish stamp was lots of fun and I enjoyed adding some bling with additional layers of flowers as well as a tad of of extra doodling, glitter and metal accent beads. I lightly tapped my sharpie markers on top of the background's embossed dots to add color. Happy stamping!

  2. That card looks just lovely Jan. Hope all is well with you.

  3. You're in the creative zone, Jan. I love this recycled design and wouldn't have noticed the security envelopes without reading your description. Very cool.
