Partly recycled card

Hello lovely bloggers,

We were away to Spain for two weeks and it was indeed a much needed vacation for us. We spent threee days in Barcelona and then went around visiting old and historic villages some of which were 1000 - 500 years old. I have to say that I find much beauty in antiquity. It was memorable to see how the old town centres and churches have been preserved inspite of random modern structures here and there. The ornate gold carvings and vibrant colours  in the cathedrals stole my heart. 

I will try and post pictures next time as I had used my hubby's phone to take pictures since my phone and wallet along with other stuff got picked in Barcelona. The good side was that I felt very free on this holiday with no bag or nothing. Lol. It was a very light a carefree feeling and I enjoyed that. To top it all, when we visited the police station and realized that there were many others in the same boat as us. Lol.

Now to my card which is partly recycled as the banners have been die cut out of packaging material. The sentiment too is part of the same stuff. The stars are from my stash and that is pretty much it. I think this would make a neat male card.

I will enter my card in the following challenges: - anything goes - anything goes - CAS - repetition

Happy crafting and happy everything,

Your holiday sounds fabulous, though what a shame about being pickpocketed :( Great card - the repetition in the chevron banners and stars is perfect for our LIM challenge and it uses such fresh colours. Fab!

Isn't it amazing how possessions weigh us down - I love that you felt so free with out them, but I do not like how you lost them. Your card is lovely, and O am sure would appeal to a man!

So sorry you had a bad experience in Barcelona Monica. Pickpockets are awful people. I love seeing old villages too - they are fascinating, aren't they? Love your card with the fab bright colours. The repeated elements are perfect for the challenge. Thank you so much for joining us at Less is More.
