This weeks Blogger Challenge #161 was to use something recycled. While going through the mail one night this week, I noticed when opening an envelope that the inside of the envelope had a pattern that looked like the background stamp called Canvas by Stampin' UP. I knew right away this was calling out to me to recycle it! :)
I selected a fun stamp that I've had forever by UpTown Rubber Stamps called "Good Morning". The card base is Garden Green with a layer of Basic Black, and Apricot Appeal DP. The coloring was done using Copics G17, V000, V01, V12, V17, YR00, YR20 and YR21 along with Memento Tuxedo Black for the image. Nesties were used to cut the circle and scallops. I dug through my button stash and was thrilled to find some buttons that matched perfectly. Linen thread was used to tie it all together.
