Sunflower Bloom

Well, I was surfin' around and checked out the Crafty Ho's Challenge Blog for this week.  The challenge is to create a card with a recycled or repurposed item(s), in honor of Earth Day. 

Of course my recycling had just gone out that same morning!  Yeah, I know.   So, that left me to scrounge around the house.  I came up with the netting from the Easter ham and a cord from a tag of a fab little jacket I picked up recently.  Okay, now what?.....LOL.

Here is the card that I came up with for the challenge:


The black cardstock is SU Basic Black.  The other cardstock is from my scrap bin.

As mentioned above, my repurposed items are the black netting from the Easter ham and the cord from a clothing tag.

The sunflower image is from Delta Creative / Rubber Stampede, Sunflower II.  The sentiment is a Hampton Art / G Studio rubber stamp.  

I colored the image with Copic Markers.  I used my Cuttlebug folder Diamonds in the Rough for the black layer.

Thanks, for the challenge.  It made me think outside of the box, for items to repurpose!

What a beautiful card. And no one would ever know that you 'recycled' parts of it!
I love the look of the sentiment!
