A Spoon Full Of Sugar

This week's challenge on the A Spoon Full Of Sugar challenge blog is


we would love to see you use something that you have recycled on your card,It
could be some scraps of card from your stash or some old scraps of material
anything really it's up to you,let your imagination run wild.

A stitched card again :0). The recycled piece is the green diamond , it is a piece of recycled material. As you can see I've used papers and the piece of material for the background layers and stitched around the edges with an olive green thread. The papers are from SU. The Hanglar image was very kindly sent to me by Katharina, thanks :0). I've coloured her in with prismas and zest it (still waiting for promarkers to come). I then sponged her label with chalk inks and stamped on the sentiment using a stamp-a-ma-jig. The image was then layered onto card and I again stitched around the edges with a yellow thread. To embellish the card I used 3 gems, some ribbon and 3 blooms with a brad.

Stamps:- Hanglar
Papers:- Stampin Up designer papers - Le jardin
Sentiment:- Stampin Up - Simply Said

There is a great prize up for grabs this week, why not go over to the blog and have a look. Some great work by the Design Team to look at and inspire you.

All the details are here
