Recycling challenge

Gill's challenge at Creations by Gill McCall this week is one  to get your creative juices flowing.


 We want you to create a project using nothing but recycled items - you can however use a new topper, stamped image or such like but all the other materials MUST be recycled items.






As it's so close to Christmas I decided that would be the way to go! I made a crossover card with pearl card and covered the left side with a piece of card cut from one of last years cards. I used a punch to cut out the sentiment from the same card and glittered the edges and the M and C. This I attached to the inside so it is visible  when the card is closed. The gold bow is from a box of chocolates.
I hope you like my recycled card but please pop over to Gill's blog and check out the rest of the DT offerings and hopefully you will have a go and I'll get to see what you create:) Please remember that to take part you need to be a follower of Gill's blog and mention it when you do your posting. Good luck!
