A Spoonful of Sugar #11 - Recycle

This week the ladies from A Spoonful of Sugar have challenged us to "Recycle". I couldn't believe it when I saw the theme as only this afternoon I sat and took these gems off an old t-shirt that had lost too many of them to look anywhere near wearable anymore! Bish bash bosh - recycling!

This is Sweet n Sassy - a gorgeous Sugar Nellie Elizabeth Bell stamp. I have coloured in with Promarkers, Sakura Souffle pens and Ranger White pen for accents. Backing paper is K&Co and the pearlescent embossed card are from my scrap box (more recyling!). Sentiment from Craftwork Cards, flowers from Scrap Fairies, butterfly from local florist and ribbon from Woolworths. Still loving these Promarkers! Thanks for looking. Lol

such a pretty card lynn, love the papers and colours...great idea to recycle your gems from your top....I was going to trash a pair of flip flops this afternoon for a charm that was on them....thought better of it in the end as they are still wearable...hehe.

Very pretty card indeed. I love the way you have coloured Sweet n Sassy and the dp match her colouring so well. I also like the way you have combined two cuttlebug embossing folders on the one card. Love all the sparkly bits and glitter :-)
