Recycle Wednesday

Unity Challenge Wednesday is here again. This week Sherry challenged us to recycle something into a card using Unity. I had been hanging on to the card above because I thought it might come in handy later on. It is a store bought thank you card from Hallmark that I recently received from a co-worker. It came with buttons and a matching envelope with flowers on the inside too.
Below is what I came up with!! I put some Lovely Lilac and Apricot papers with it. The background is Unity Polka Dots background stamp, stamped in Tangerine Tango. I added some color to the flowers and stamped "hello" and "friend" sentiments using my PTI Mixed Messages. Then I finished it off with some orange ribbon and white twine.
Not bad for recycled.

On the inside of the card, I took the inside of the envelope above and punched out the little flower images and tacked them to the bottom left of the cards inside.
I hated to see it go to waste and it made added a nice touch!
There you have it - my very first card using recycled material!!
Thanks for looking and have a super day!!

Fabulous, Kim!! Love the idea of reusing the card front in a new way, and how you tied it together on the inside with the punched image!
