CD Sunday Challenge, - Recycling with Carol


 Hi,
Today has been the most gorgeous day,  sun is shining and there's just a little high cloud,   its warm but not too hot.    My washing dried,  I am having the bedroom painted, so I washed the curtains they are now ironed waiting to go up and the bedding is also dry and can go on the bed when the room is finished.   hopefully Saturday,   when he's finished.
Today I bring you my card for the CD Sunday Challenge  this time is Recycling with Carol,   first my recycled items are from an old birthday card I have kept for sometime,   its the bird table, the butterflies, and the little birdy at the bottom of the image all from the one card.   I used an image matted onto silver card and the backing paper from Joanna Sheens CD  Pamela West.    I made the card into a step card out of green card and added the bird table and then at the back the trellis, flourish and ivy and rose buds with a handmade bow,   and put another flourish along the bottom with a small spray of an ivy leaf and rose bud with a handmade bow.
Unfortunately the camera has not taken a brilliant photo today,  he needs recharging and although the sun is shining it did not take a good picture my apologises.
I hope you like my card and I look forward to seeing you again in blog land soon.
             Hugs
         Margaret

  3. The cards look so fun and I love the trellis work i the background. great idea to recycle the cards this way, I had a friend that made little boxes out of store bought cards, that was only thing I thought of till you did this! I like it it! :)

  7. Nicely done! I've always wondered, do the cards go in envelopes or are they delivered as they are?

    1. Hopefully they go in an envelope, there are times when finding an envelope to fit a card becomes a headache, every card I sell has to have an envelope, sometimes I wished I had the envelope first before I made the card, with all the bits that go onto a card, envelopes are the last thing I tend to think of until I pack them up.
      Thanks for a great question.
      Margaret

  16. Oh this is lovely Margaret! The recycled bits go so well with the Pamela West scene. Very clever and very striking. Sorry haven't been around but have had my lovely daughter visiting from South Africa. She was only here for two weeks but it was wonderful to spend time with her. Michelle x
