365 Cards - Day 54 - Recycled Elements

Today's challenge on 365 Cards was to recycle something you would not normally use on a card.

I really wanted to something altered for this challenge but as I have had a really busy day at work today I simply didnt have the time to complete anything too labour intensive so here is my card for today.

I cant say I am that happy with it but there you go.

My recycled item is the printed paper pages taken from a damaged book that was destined for the bin.

Maybe it will grow on me!!

I love it - I was thinking of using book pages - it is a great idea, may have to make one with book pages for Father's day.

Hi Maz it doesn't have to grow on me I love it!! It looks fantastic and I would love to know how you did it.

You sound like me!! Yesterday was such a hard day for me. I just hated my card!! I really like the flower that you made. I always love the look of book pages. Great job even when you were pooped!!

hugs, Karen Lee

You should be very happy with it!!! Love how you used the pages from a book!!

I like it! I am curious as to how you made the flower...I am stumped, it is visually very interesting.

I love it Maz! It's really cool how you've scalloped all the edges. Very creative.

Love Karen xxx

Hey, I love it! IT fits the theme. I thought we had to alter a package we were tossing. So I didn't have anything to cover that I wanted to keep and thought that would be adding to the waste. OOPS. I misunderstood.
Your card is really cool. I love the type inside the image. I may start doing this with junk mail!!!

It's very retro and I think it's great!
