Papertrey Challenge 6 - Recycle

Busy day today, my third post in one day!

My good friend Steph sent me some Papertrey stash to play with the other week, today was the first chance I had to play with it - its GreeeeeaaaaaaaaaatttT - Only thing I have to do now is return the stamps :( don't worry Steph I took care of them like they were my babies ;0) They are on my birthday list, but unfortunately they are now a bit further down the list, after the Pandora Bracelet I MUST have LOL

This is what I created for the Papertrey Challenge



The challenge was to make a card that uses at least one recycled element on it, I did have ONE recycled element, which was the button, which came from an item of clothing. I always remove the buttons and hanging ribbons before throwing clothing out, never know what I can use on a card or a layout ;0)

I also tried to pick out the glitter in the button by randomly spreading glitter on the blooms, not sure if you can see in the photo?


Recipe:

Stamps: PTI Spiral Bouquet, sentiment from stash
Cardstock: PTI (but unsure which colour - one of the pinks)
DSP: PTI Pink Patterns
Ribbon: PTI
Brads: Colour Matched from stash
Ink: SU Cameo Coral, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery
Stickles: Icicle
