A Spoonful of Sugar - Recycle

It is a well know fact that Crafters never throw anything away so the challenge on A Spoonful of Sugar this week is ideal RECYCLE. There ia a fab prize of a paperpack and fairy stamps from Dotty Do Crafts.I have used the lovely Honey & Pip stamp by the very talented Elizabeth Bell and available at Funky Kits She has been coloured using Distress Inks and H20's (surprise, surprise he!he!). It is a very plain card but I am so pleased with it (now how often do you hear me say that) The ovals have all been cut using my Nesties and I have actual raised the largest oval with foam spacers. The recycle bit is the thin red ribbon, these were the hanging straps from my red dressing gown, the first thing I do when I get new items of clothing is cut these straps out and add them to my ribbon stash. The Christmas Tree charm, jump rings and sticky back pearls are from my stash. TFL
