Paper Blooms Earth Day Challenge


Paper Blooms challenge for Earth Day was to recycle something for use on your card. Does this flower look familiar? I took the card I recently made apart to save the flower and ribbon for this card which was supposed to be for Paper Blooms 3rd challenge.....This is the first chance I had to make the 5 B's challenge, went to upload and found the challenge ended yesterday. So I am entering it for this week's challenge instead! I decided that I liked Pacific Point as a base, placed my blossom and ribbon on it, then added the word 'bloom' and 2 layered butterfly with gem body for interest. My stamps are SU: Bloomin' Beautiful, From the Garden and Flight of the Butterfly, ink and cs is Pacific Point. The flower is colored in Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, Certainly Celery and Basic Brown. The gems are Doodlebug's Blue Jeans Jewels, Stickles and ribbon finish the card. I saved the cs from the original card to use again for something else, no waste here. I love scraps and use almost every piece of paper I can.
Thanks for taking a look and leaving a comment.

This is so gorgoeus, why I never thought about taking any of mine to bits to re-use, I have a few i could do that to.

What a neat color combo -- the softer flowers really look lovely against the bright blue background. Beautiful recycling!
