Some up-cycling!



I am so happy with this card.......the entire card is made with old wedding invites (even the cardstock base).......my parents being college professors get invited to a lot of weddings.......whenever I visit them I bring back tons of wedding invites which I usually use to die-cut flowers, swirls etc.
As I don't have a die-cutting machine these days I decided to make my own blooms from the invites.......they were very easy to make (i kept the printed side up....love the effect!).
Challenges : Recycling with Sonia Suprabha Venugopal! :) at Yvonne's blog, Simon Says Stamp Birthday Challenge, Card Patterns Sketch #163, I used this inspiration photo for the Virginia's View Challenge at Lily Pad Cards:
