Recycled Birthday Card

Today's card is inspired by the challenges at The Paper Players:


 and also by the challenge at Less Is More:

 Use a recycled item!

For the first challenge I've followed the top line and for the second challenge my recycled items are:

The sequin waste was used as a mask to make the background.  I've always cut the ribbons out of clothing as they never stay hidden and I have a huge bag full - I chose some in a lovely shade of cornflower blue. The leaflets were packaging waste from my fave perfume - Angel by Thierry Mugler. Here's the result...

Thanks for visiting

  6. Oh, I am so wonderfully impressed how you combined the two challenges, and especially your use of recycled items, Sharon! It makes me want to recycle, too! Thanks so much for sharing your project and playing along with Tic-Tac-Toe this week at The Paper Players!

  7. What a fabulous work of art! If you hadn't shown us how you made it, I never would have guessed it was from recycled materials. Love the sponged polka dot background! Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!
