Weekend Sketch, Recycled

DSCF3830

Just a quick post today!  This very simple card uses Beate's Weekend Sketch, which is actually by Lori Craig, and Our Creative Corner's challenge for this week, which was to recycle something.

The image on my card is from an envelope I got from a paralyzed veterans group that periodically sends me notecards, address labels, etc.  They are usually very pretty, so this time, I "dissected" the envelope and  cut out two images; I'll save the other for another card.  It is mounted on Perfect Plum and Barely Banana mats, then mounted on a Mellow Moss card that has been stamped with the grasses from Inspired by Nature.  Two little CB tags, stamped with a sentiment from PTI's Mixed Messages and secured with a Latte button, finish it off.  This will be a good card to use for someone at my church!  TFL!

Glad to know I'm not the only one who "recycles". My latest and greatest was the images from the back of my 2009 calendar which shows each of the 12 months invidividually. Not only are they beautiful watercolor florals - but they are "pre-matted".

This is very pretty.It looks like an Anne Bastien (sp?) rendering - and she's phenomenal!

I loved making my "Going Green" card for OCC this week... And your's is such "VISUAL DELIGHT" LeAnne!! That image is sweet... I keep pieces off cards I receive by non-stampers, mail, etc. to use when I can! TFS!! :)

Yes - Leanne - I meant Marjolein Bastin - I'm not usually so bad with names - it just wouldn't come to me. I'd love to see your crosstitch when you finish.

Love this. I would not have guessed that was a recycled envie, I thought it was a digital scrapping image. Love the mats and grasses image in the background.

Very pretty - your details (corners, sponging, colors) are all beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
