Hey all!! It's Sunday!
Hope everyone is well & raring to go with the new challenge over at
The Crafty Pad
The Crafty Pad
The Theme for Challenge #159 is
Use Something Recycled
Here is my card
I used Sammy Scarecrow one of my many favourite images from
He's just so cute & I thought he was perfect for a recycled theme!
Just look at what he's wearing!!!
Now, what have I used that is recycled?????
My base card is made from a sheet of black card which was
inside the box my hubby's posh shirt came in at Christmas.
I scored & cut it down to make a 5x5" card
My image & ticket were printed onto a piece of card from my scrap box,
it has a DP printed on the reverse.
The beanstalky type panel is part of a box which contained
one of these posh room sprays.
Finally the fantastic button is from the button box that I was given
by a friend & was labelled
I'm so delighted with that box of buttons!!!
I coloured the image up with my promarkers, then cut him out with a nestie!
As it was the largest Nestie in the set, I traced around the outside to make a matt.
There's a fair bit of distressing going on around the edges & some faux stitching!
The Design Paper is from Bo Bunny Ad Lib Collection
Here's that fab button!!
I added some baker's twine which I tied in a bow after
threading through the button
& is another one of my faves!
I decorated the inside of the card with some leftover scraps!
Just a final little photo of my card from the side!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
