Partly recyled again - gift wrap and wall paper

The inspiration for this card has come from one of the quick makes I saw at Sandra's blog when I visited it for the very first time. Thank you, Sandra...


 I have die cut the hearts from Sizzix and guess what I have used to make the hearts? The silver paper has been recycled from gift wrap while the creamy hearts have been die cut from a beautiful wall paper roll I bought for barely 2 or 3 pounds in a hardware shop in the suburbs of London.  To make it look posh, I used pearlised baby blue card stock - which sadly cannot be seen in this image.


The hearts at the bottom have been punched using Carla craft minis. It looks much better in person as the pattern on the wall paper cannot be seen in this poor image. What a pity!

Well done , Monica, it is a great example of recycling and also that you dont need to have a stash of stamps to create little gems .
