Basic Grey & Whiff of Joy Challenges

Good morning and happy Saturday. We have a new challenge starting today over on Basic Grey Challenges. We would like to see you use something recycled on your creations. 

As always we are being sponsored by our one only sponsor Simon Says Stamp and the prize is a wonderful $25 credit voucher!!

My papers are Basic Grey Hopscotch 6x6 and my recycled items are the Kraft card & button. I never throw out any item of clothing until all buttons have been removed, lol. 

My image is called Baking Tray of Love and it's one of the new stamps designed by Elizabeth Bell for Whiff of Joy's recently released Spring Kit.  I am also entering into Elizabeth Bell's World challenge which is to create a recipe card. I printed the recipe for sugar cookies on kraft card that I recycled and made it into a removable tag. I punched my borders using MS Vintage Lace punch and machine stitched all my papers.

The fabby distressed seam binding I found on Etsy and this was my last piece of pink :( 
The pearls, pearl topped pins and floss are from my stash. The button is from the jar I put all my scavenged buttons into ;) 

Skin - E00. 02, 21, 51
Hair - E13, 25, 27

Beautiful card Sandie! I too remove the buttons if a garment is doomed to the trash heap.
Once, tho, I was going to give an item to a charity because it was in good shape with no stains---but then I noticed how fabulous the buttons were! You can guess what I did.
I’m glad you joined us for the DYSU Add a Bow challenge & hope to see you again!
