Recycle, Re-purpose and Re-use

Hi everyone,

Well over on the DCD* flickrgroup & blog the theme for this month is Recycle, Re-purpose & re-use.  So I finally have gotten a chance to do something for the challenge & this is what I came up with.
 This is the "before" a sticker sheet backing & two sticker flowers.
This is the "after".  The sticker sheet backing is the circle.  My re-purpose is the music sheet paper.  As for my re-use it's the flowers, I've had them sitting around for like ever!  With the challenge you don't have to do all three, but I like to see what I can do. 

I think this card looks nicer irl than what it does here.  My scanner doesn't seem to like lumpy things ;P so thats why the picture is pretty average.  Just a quick note other than the stamped bird image & sentiment I haven't used any inks at all on this card.  I must be feeling sick. 

Have a great week every one & happy crafting xoxoxoxoxo

Great way to use those 3 -R's! I'm poorly with tonsillitis right now and can't believe that I have time to craft but feel too grotty. How mad is that???? Hugs to you, and a furry purry from Custard, Jo x

Love seeing the bird cage stamp Paula, and all of your design elements go so well together. The pink ribbon is very pretty!
