Our Creative Corner - Recycling and Dutch Dare - Favorites

The challenge this week at OCC is to use recycled material (one of my favorite things to do) in your card. Paper crafting produces a lot of waste. That is why it is so important to recycle whenever you can. I made the flowers with the packaging from some scrapbook supplies. I thought the design was interesting, and the petals formed nicely. Not only is recycling packaging one of my favorite things to do, it is also one of my pet peeves. Those that know me have heard me say time after time to recycle. The Dutch Dare Card Challenge this week is to make a card using your favorite things. This card probably represents mine the best.: handmade embellishments, recycled packaging, Shasta daises, layered little delicate butterflies, Copic markers, hand stitched, multiple mats. With all of these things combined into one card, you know it was a real pleasure to make. I think I am going to make some more, especially with the flowers and butterflies.
