Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is reducing, reusing and recycling!


Let's see...this lovely pink grosgrain ribbon my kiddies pj's came wrapped up in at Christmas time is yummy but the wrong colour for my card. Let's use some glimmer mist and change the colours to see what works....


Oh yeah...candy apple red that's the ticket....


Voila!

This week's challenge is to use a recycled element to your card. I was sooo excited because lazy as I am I planned to reuse an image I had already coloured and used on a card and just make it on another card. Piece of cake! So I was bragging to Kimmie about my idea and she had to clarify that's not what the challenge meant....lol! It is to take an actual item from around your house and include it in your card. As the pictures above shared I used a ribbon that came on some pj's for the kiddo's. What a great idea for a challenge! I used Abigail Apple who is just as delish to colour as she looks. I coloured her to match my yummy MME papers and died the bow to match. Love her!

Cheers, Andrea
