Recycled Love

Hello everyone!!! Hope you are having a great day.

I am working on my final projects for my final Dirty Dozen gallery and took a break to play with this this new set from Unity called Love Grows.

I adore this heart-y tree---So much fun to play with! The sentiment is also part of this set and there are more really cool images!!! I know I will using this a lot!

And do you see that big ole ribbon??? That was recycled from a new teen store I went to with my daughter. When you check-out, they put your items in a fun bag and tie a ribbon around it. The cute part is that they let you select the ribbon and when my daughter found that out, she said "Go ahead, Mom! Pick what YOU want!" Ahh...she knows me too well!!! I finally found the perfect home for it right on this card!

Materials used: Stamps- Love Grows (Unity Stamp Co.); Memento tuxedo black ink; white/black cardstock (Gina K Pure Luxury); Kraft Cardstock (SU!); designer paper- trad. tiny words (KI Memories), Green-Canopy: Brunch Collection (Crate); ribbon -recycled from store, gingham-Offray; key tag punch (SU!); clip (SU!); Copic red marker; black, red Stampin Up! Markers; Brenda Walton adhesive rhinestones (K & company); Raindot hearts (Gina K Designs); Cutting system (Creative Memories); paper piercing tool.

Thanks for stopping by!

I like the color scheme and I'm very impressed you were able to use that great ribbon (another "girly" fear I have...ribbon (shudders)....requires bow making....

Your card is awesome Carolyn. I love the hearty tree and I love the color combination that you chose to use. Thanks for sharing how and where you got the neat ribbon that matches so well with your design.

Lovely card!

My husband is "trained" like that too -- everywhere he travels (and he travels a lot for work), he brings me back interesting tidbits and scraps. My co-workers also give me lots of fancy tissue boxes because they know I like to play with the patterns!
