Recycled from a wall paint brochure

Hello sweet peeps,

Thanks for the warm welcome back to blogland. I love the comraderie we share even though we have never met. Only a blogger would understand what I am saying. Sometimes it feels like a pen pal club except that we send do everything electronically.

Here is a card made with a Nippon paint brochure which my hubby had binned. Yes, I took it out of the dustbin and luckily it was in a plastic sleeve so was intact. It took for forever to place the feather and the leaf (my new buy from Michael's). The flowers have been punched and the paper for the leaf came from Merry from Australia. Thank you, Merry! The feather is from my stash - better use them up instead of stocking them.


I will enter this card in the following challenges:

Catch you later...

Love,

Monica
