Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge - Recycle

Happy Saturday!!! Well all things going as planned I am at the NEC show in Birmingham, UK, meeting up with blogger buddies and shopping like there's no tomorrow, lol. And, all things going well this post has actually published on time!! ;)

We have a new challenge today over on Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - we want you to recycle something for your project. 

This was my Mother's Day card. I recycled it, using the sentiment and the whole right hand side to make the panel on my recycled card.

To replace the bathtub in the original card I used Brigitte. Perfect, no?!  

My papers are Sweet Fairy by Prima, matted onto pink and black cardstock. I've coloured Brigitte with copic sketch markers and cut her out using circle nestabilities, trimming out around her leg first. Then I adhered her onto a scalloped circle and white doily.

I almost had to handcuff myself to leave my card sans flowers and pearls - I didn't want to cover up any more of the recycled card AND I quite liked the clean lines as they were.

To see what the rest of the Krafty girls have created and find out what our prize is this week, run on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge blog.
