Dottie goes Green!

Karen set this week's challenge over on Dottie's World!


Everything today is focused on environmental issues, so lets GO GREEN in our Sunday Challenge! Show me how green you can get! But this is a green dish with a few extra ingredients, sprinkle it with three buttons or brads, season with a little ribbon, and finally add that special little "recycled something". Plus of course it must contain at least one Charmed Cards & Crafts download.

I have had an awful week and to sit down and craft for even a short while was such a blessing. I used some green polka dot paper mixed with a weird combination of bright pink and burgundy! I cheated again with this as the ribbon was recycled (from around a birthday cake) the buttons were recycled (off an old shirt) and the pale pink mirror card was part of some old packaging I thought too good to bin! Even the strands of green embroidery silk was a left over from a cross stitch kit I had years ago.

Loving them - as I thought I would! Especially love the second one, but only because it's more "me" than the first!

Fantastic!
