Recycled


Chocoholic's Friday Challenge over on the forum was to have a recycled item on the card.
I went a bit better and apart from the base card everything is recycled. My favourite thing, so satisfying.
The brown paper is cut from an envelope Sarn (Chocoholic) had made when she sent me a beautiful friendship card. I punched out a flower and a circle too with this paper.
The lovely swirly paper is cut from an advertising letter as are the remaining punched circles for the flower.
The script strip is a paper off the gum strip off an envelope - check out the word Basildon lol!!
The button must be about 50 years old and is out of my mum's treasured button tin and is a really scuffed looking thing.
The thread is from my cotton throw which when I washed it unravelled at the edges so these were cut off and are proving very useful.
The sentiment is cut from the Thank You letter accompanying a CD I bought from Pink Petticoat.
So I definitley think this is my best recycling effort to date.
This card will also be great for the current ABC Challenge - C for Circles.
And
A Spoonful of Sugar 67 - Distressing as all edges of the flowers were distressed and the brown paper also
