Hi everyone,


We have a new challenge at Come and Get It which is to recycle or reuse something to create your project.


At first I was going to use some of the ribbon I have kept to use for a later date. You know the ribbons off flowers or presents that you have received and they are just lovely so you keep them aside to use once more! 


I know crazy but true.


But then I decided to play with some newspaper, yep ordinary newspaper and see what I could do.


I found an article which was near a picture so I chopped the paper down to the size I wanted, then I added it to a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.


I then daubered some Soft Suede ink to make it look a little older and layered it on some Real Red cardstock.


I added a sentiment, some ribbon and of course a butterfly with ‘bling’ and here is the end result:





Stamp set: Itty Bitty Banners, Everything Elanor

Card: Real Red, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Pacific Point
Ink: Soft Suede, More Mustard, Pacific Point

Accessories: Beautiful Wings Emboss its, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Scallop Trim Border, Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, (retired), Bitty Banners Framelits, Newspaper Article, Daubers, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



Different and unusual but I think the more I look at it the more I like it.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
