I ♥ Recycling

OK, so I am quite proud of this :)
All the paper on this card is recycled.  Yay.
It is all packaging from my Imaginisce products - the heart paper was from a package of flowers, and the yellow paper from some transfers.  How pretty???  Far too pretty to throw away.  So I added rub-ons and my favourite thickers and voila.
How great is recycling :)
I also made this little card using a few leftovers and more of that yellow packaging.
I can't believe how quickly this week has gone... I'll be SO glad when it's over.  Being a teacher can be so stressful....
P.S. I'm on the Papercrafts blog today - they've shown a card I had published in Stamp It! Cards.  Yay! :)

If you hadn't told us, I would never have known that the cards used packaging. They are so pretty.

AWESOME! I LOVE recycling too! When people buy from my Etsy shop they get my breakfast cereal box keeping their papers from getting bent and I use the cello on packaging to repackage thier goodies. I LOVE what you made with your packages! :)
