papertrey make it monday

Playing along at the Papertrey Make it Monday where Stephanie created a lovely card using different types of recycled papers. Well I can do that. I could do that for the next million cards probably...

Here's her card.

Here's mine.


I should definitely get the prize for using up the most S**T from my workspace for this one! All I actually "did" for this, besides glueing, is die cut the notebook edge, the butterflies from a dictionary page and the mat for my sentiment.

The other "stuff" included my trimmed down stamping off scrap paper (recognize the pink snowballs and black scribble circles?), a PC-generated sentiment I've had in my drawer for years, a neon "happy" that was rejected in favor of a black one awhile ago and some little butterflies punched from scraps. I've got a whole box of them. Oh, and the mat is actually a piece of cloth I dyed with leftover Easter egg dye.

Are you playing too? I'd love to see what you recycle. Happy weekend!
