Good morning peeps! I hope all that celebrated Easter had a very joyous day with their family and friends!
Today though, we celebrate Earth Day! So this week at SHOPPING OUR STASH we challenge you to make a card or project that uses something that is upcycled or recycled! I'm not gonna lie, I had a hard time trying to figure out what to do with this challenge. But I squeaked my project in just at the 11th hour. For real. ☺ Here, check it:
Here's the inside:
I almost didn't have anything made for this challenge, because my first attempt at the roses was an epic failure. But Leslie cheered me on and said "You can do it!" So, after dinner (and a couple glasses of wine), I tried it again, and Wa-lah! I stumbled upon an excellent way to roll the petals: Use a quilling tool! Not only did it come in handy to wind up the flowers nice and tight, but I also used it to roll back all. the. petals. Oh, and see that satin ribbon I used? It's older than my marriage. (23 years next month!) It was left over from the table arrangements I made for the reception hall tables! How about THAT for shopping my stash! LOL!
So, are you up for this challenge? I double dog dare you! Don't forget to link up your card or project at SHOPPING OUR STASH, and while you're there, check out all the amazing creations that my teammates made! You will be blown away! Thanks for hanging out with me and I hope you have a fabulous day! Stay crafty my friends!
