Earth Day/Recycle/Scrap Challenge
I actually made this card BEFORE today's SCS Challenge to make a card using some scraps from your table!! This glittery chipboard flower had been originally been on THIS card but fell prey to a little liquid mishap during stamp club---oops! I was able to salvage the chipboard and it was sitting there all lonely, so I decided to "recycle" it in honor of Earth Day. I used a piece of Summer Picnic DP I had tossed to the side along with a piece of wide Real Red grosgrain. For fun I wanted to see if I could emboss something on the ribbon, so I stamped "sweet" from Sweet Shapes in white EP, and it worked! The image is not perfectly clear because of the ribbed-ness (I know that's not a word!) of the ribbon, but it is still pretty cute. I think I may use this for my niece's college grad card. And I am feeling good because I recycled something, even if it's not "green"! TFL!
