Recycled butterflies and cork

Saturday April 21, 2012

Unscripted Sketches challenge and piggyback - since Earth Day is coming use recycle on your card/project http://unscriptedsketches.com/


for my card I used a scrap of cork and I made the butterflies and flower using an old colorful calander page of Hawaii views and die cut the images. I love the nice feel of the thick calendar pages and the beautiful flowers really made for beautiful butterflies.. The ribbon is from an old bag handle and I cut it and used it for the card the button was from a shirt.
