I decided to try one of the Challenges on the Gingersnap group. Entries due in today or tomorrow, so I probably won't enter it after all. Since I was participating late (and only I knew I was participating, lol) I just made a simple card. Almost everything on it is recycled.
The buttercup cardstock is the only element on the card that is NOT recycled.
The corrugated background is from a used USPS priority mail box. The outer white layer of paper on these boxes peel off easily to reveal the wonderful corrugated paper beneath.
Then there is a layer of used gift wrap that I had saved and the Frog Stamp from Wild Frog Creations was stamped on a scrap of white card from my scrap box. Colored with markers.
I had taken apart an old belt of mine (my waist grew) instead of donating it or trashing it. I saved the entire belt. I'll find a use for it. The three clear circular rhinestones with brass frames on the left side of the card are from that belt. The three brass nail heads below the frog are also from that belt.
a special gift, oh happy day
