BC161 - Recycle!
Hello everyone. Did you have a good week? Mine was busy. Normally I only work 4 days, but this week I worked 5. There were some people in from out of town, so I went in on my day off to join one of the meetings and do a presentation for my dept. I had hoped to be able to take Friday off - but alas, due to several schedule conflicts, I will go in early on Friday for an important meeting on my project with the technical expert and the tech team from India will dial in. The early morning was the only time everyone could join because of their time difference. BUT - I will leave early Friday!
So, about my card! This was fun. Our challenge was to use something recycled. So, where did I go for inspiration? My craft room garbage can of course. I found a bag from Colorful Creations and I thought, I can totally use this fun, brown waxy bag in my outdoorsy themed card! So when I cut it down, I realized there was a shift in vertical on the zigzag edge so I decided to make that ground/mountain and put the trees behind.
I colored the Amuse tree image with my copics and layered this on my Amuse wood paper and the card base is always artichoke. I found my wild about you sentiment and felt that was a good fit for this card and then roughed everything up - added a twine ribbon layer and glued it all together and VOILA - my bloggers challenge card with recycled materials. I now really want to get some fun amuse sentiments from the great outdoors like their 'life is good' sentiment or their 'take a hike' or some other fun one like that. Maybe when my mom comes to visit in August she'll want to go to Providence Mall and we can poke into Bella Art and I can find a few treasures! They usually have a great selection of Amuse sentiments (plus lots of other goodies too!)
Well, I hope you all have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by. Leave a quick comment for me if you can. I love to hear from those who visit!
