Ways to Use it Challenge #337 - RECYCLE

This weeks Ways to Use it Challenge over at SplitcoastStampers is to Recycle.  You can think of recycling in many different ways ...

Use packaging found around the house from something you got in the mail
Use packaging from a store bought item
Reuse ribbon from a present
Use cardboard from your designer paper package
Just about anything that's been used before

I chose to take this birthday card I received from Juanita over at SplitcoastStampers, aka Schmoopie, and recycle it.  I liked that it was a very CAS card so I had a lot of room to play.

I stamped over the cameo card base with some cameo ink and a flourish from Stampin Up all over.  I then added this sparkly flourish I got recently which goes with the stamped flourishes.  The image is mine from The Stamping Boutique that I colored with Copics.  I added some clear glitter gel pen to the curly-Q's and some glossy accents to the tags before matting on cherry cobbler.  I also matted the recycled sentiment onto the cherry.  The card was small to start, so I put it on a single sheet base of cobbler to make it an A2 size.

Great challenge, Hannah - Loved this one.
Hope you all like it as well.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit.  Love to hear your comments.
