Recycled Materials

Good Morning,

Welcome back for another challenge at Made Especially for You. Yesterday was Earth Day and Arbor Day is this Friday. Our challenge this week supports the environment and the need to conserve our resources (and to use the supplies we already have).  

This week's challenge...
Create a card using a recycled material (for Earth Day). You could use old book pages, bottlecaps, newspaper, basically anything that has been used before and is now being re-used on your card.

Here is my Design Team project...

K&Company paper
black cardstock
Winter Woodland cartridge ~ C (p. 64) cut at 3"
green, grey, and black flowers
black ribbon (recycled from a dress ~ the piece used for hanging)
black heart button (fell off my daughter's sock about 3 - 6 months ago) 
green pearls
cream craft thread

This Week's Sponsor:

Prize: Winner will receive a set of decorative corsage pins

Other Challenges:
My Sheri Crafts ~ Marvelous Monograms
One Stop Craft Challenge ~ Sketch #179

Can't wait to see all those projects!

Stay Creative,
