Earth Day...

Tree Image was provided by JellyPark
For Earth Day - 4/22/14
613 Ave. C challenges us to Reuse and Recycle.  I started with this image from Jellypark and everything I used in designing the card fit the theme of reuse &/or recycle! The papers, string & ribbon were all from my desk scrap pile, the sentiment stamp was actually rescued from a friend's pile of supplies being given away.  The corner brads were from my stash and the only thing that might be counted as new.
This should be a fun and easy challenge for all the paper artists!  You can go HERE to see this challenge and the many creative takes on this theme by the Designers!  I hope you will join in on the fun  - the sponsor this go around is Jellypark and the deadline is Saturday, April 19.
