Upcycling - LCOM Card Challenges

This week's card challenge, over at the Let's Capture Our Memories blog, is all about upcycling. We were to use something on our cards that would normally have been tossed in the recycle bin or garbage can.

I'd been saving some of these Prima packages for a project like this - they are too pretty to toss. I included 3 different ones here, actually. The flowers are cut from Bo Bunny patterned papers.

The swirly transparent designs are from a package of hair clips. I guess it worked out well I needed new ones this week! I punched the butterflies from the remainder of the Prima Marketing flower package, and added some distress stickles for a little shine.

CS, PP - Bo Bunny
letters - Pink Paislee
dew drops - Stamping Bella
washi tape - 7 gypsies
distress stickles, ink - Ranger
other - packaging from Prima flowers, packaging from hair clips

Great idea to use packaging! You can really get a lot of of them. I love your card-the colors are gorgeous!
