Queen of Recycling is here...

Hello lovely people,
Hope you are having a warm and sunny Tuesday... mine was rather busy with the kids being at home since everything is closed here for a week for the festival of Eid. Hubby went to golf so we went eating out and shopping. If he can play golf three days in a row, I can have a nice time too. Lol.

This card is for the challenge over at CAS on Sunday which is to tag it. This tag has been recycled and I thought it was just too pretty to be binned. I have covered up the text with the little thank you chip board sentiment that came from Sandra. The daisies have been punched and their centres have been made with a clay similar to Amos clay which belongs to Aleeza. I pinched some clay while playing with her to make the centres of these flowers. I do like my flower centres and the idea of recycling but am not too sure of the layout of this card. It looks a bit bland at the bottom, doesn't it? I have embossed straight lines on the card with my scorer and scoring board but it doesn't show in the picture. I think I may liven it up a bit more at the bottom - comments welcome :-)

I will also enter this card in:

Off to do some commenting now.

I can see the embossed lines. The procedure you used to make the centers of the flowers is a new one to me and I may have to check into that! I think it's a beautiful CAS card! Thanks for joining us at Fitztown Challenge Blog!

Hello Monica. What a cute little tag and the colours are so delicate. The daisies are just perfect and it shows off the sentiment perfectly.
I too can see the score lines down the card, it adds to the delicate tone of the card.
Love it.
Happy crafting.
Love Sandra xxx

Monica-I love how you made the centres of the flowers-how clever!They look fabulous.
I like your card as it is-but i can see that the empty space could make you feel like you should add more-what about a hand drawn border line(like a kind of doodled line) around the edge in pen?Might pull it all together for you :)
Have a lovely day,Nessa xx
