Penny Black Saturday #144 - Recycling...


Morning :) Saturday has rolled around very quick this week so it's time for a new challenge over
This week's challenge is 'RECYCLING'.....a chance to use up all those things us crafters think...oooh that would look good on a card lol!

I have used an old manila envelope which probably had a bill in! for my matting and flowers and also some string from the garage and an old button from my button box.
Check out all the DT cards {HERE} for some fab recycling ideas!
The image is coloured with promarkers and prismas for shading and I have used my retro flower punches for the flowers.....the sentiment is a SRM sticker.

I have used the fabulous sketch #157 by Deb from Cute Card Thursday for the layout.

There are 2 fabulous prizes up for grabs this week....so check out the blog for all the details :)
Looking forward to seeing all your 'recycled' creations :)

Thanks for looking xx
