Partly recyled

Hello dear bloggers,

I have great news to share. As I may have mentioned in one of my previous posts, the school shop allowed me to place my cards there and two cards sold. Yes, two and I am very grateful for it. They do take a mark up yet I am happy that I have a platform to sell. I will also find out more about bazaars and take a table there to make my presence felt. Beside, I am thinking of opening a dedicated face book page talking about my recycled as well as other cards. Lots to do and much excitement too.

Back to my card which is partly recycled. I cut out the image from a birthday card that is 20 years old and popped it on foam dots. The flowery strip you see has been cut from the card as well. Under the strip is another nestie that I cut with a paper cutter.  

The crushed pearlised paper below is handmade from India. I stuck it on white card stock covering it totally. I am telling myself to hoard less and use more. This paper has been with me for 15 years and only a card maker would realise what I am talking about. Lol. 

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Happy card making and happy everything,
