Recycling with the Creative Card Crew



It's time for a new challenge at the Creative Card Crew blog, and this week we'd like you to recycle something. We're sponsored by Paper Pretties, and I used their sweet Bunny Lucy digi stamp.

Now since this is a digi card, and obviously all digital elements are almost infinitely re-useable, how did I incorporate recycling into my project? Well, I used Christmas items, so I guess "re-purposing" is a more accurate term for what I did. The papers are from the Holiday Wishes set at Crafty Chaos Designs, and the matting layer behind the image is actually a Christmas bauble die cut shape. See her pretty patterned dress? If you look closely, she's been paper-pieced with a snowflake paper, but I think it looks like a delicate floral print when it's not in close-up.
Here are the challenges I'd like to enter:
