A Spoon Full of Sugar -Challenge 11

We are on challenge 11 at A Spoon Full of Sugar, this week we would like you to 'Recycle' use something that you have around the house, this could be old scraps of papers, buttons/ribbons/material from old clothes, whatever you can find and use! The prize this week has been kindly donated by Lana of Dottydocrafts http://dottydocrafts.com/ and is a fab set of fairy stamps and a designer paper pack.
I actually made my card on Friday using the sketch from Friday Sketchers but have had to wait until now to show it haha...!! The image is Sugar Nellie's 'Peeking Luca and Nellie', I have paper pieced Nellie's dress and Luca's t-shirt and wrist band using the backing papers which I think looks quite effective. My recycled item is the centre of the flower, this is from a bracelet one of the girls had and pulled apart! The flowers are recycled to as they are pulled from a bunch of artificle flowers (I love all of the Prima's but am tight, and this is the cheaper option!!) Hope you like my card, why not pop over and see the rest of the girls designs they are amazing as always. Can't wait to see what you create and what item can be recycled, have fun!
