The Paper Shelter Challenge #190 - Recycle Something

Good morning and welcome to my post for The Paper Shelter Challenge blog. this week it is Team B's turn to host the challenge and we are challenging you to recycle something on your project. I'm sure we all have stuff lying around that we have salvaged from something else and kept for that "just in case" moment. I know I have!

I have used some thick red and white twine that a tag was attached to one of my Christmas presents and the large black mesh flower was from a card I was given for my birthday last year. The card itself was handmade but not by the friend who gave it to me - she bought a handmade card and I thought this flower would be perfect on one of my cards one day and today was that day!

Anyway here's my card using the gorgeous She's Charming! Love how pretty this one is!

Papers: Real Red, Basic Black & Whisper White all from Stampin' Up, Copic X-Press It Blending Card, Dusk Patterned Papers from Perfect Prints
