This challenge was interesting and a lot of fun for me. Since Earth day was coming up, the challenge was to recycle and reuse. So to find a magazine, or phone book, or newspaper with wording or images and use them to create your card. I of course, have tonz of magazines in my house. I used one from December 2009 that I hadn’t even opened out of the packaging!!! How bad is that! I think the ad was for glade so I cut out individual flowers and then used pop dots to make some of them stand out. I used the glade plug in image for a vase. The butterflies were punched using a different page that had a bunch of colored wording on it. I ran the base through my cuttlebug using the Victoria folder and then stamped a sentiment on it. I think it turned out quite well for a first attempt.
