Team Dare!! Recycle..........

Thanks once again to everyone who took part in both Lythan's dare and also the mid week anniversary themed dare. Its been great to see all your creations.

This week we have a team dare for you ....and we have been looking at Recycling once again. BUT there is a tiny twist! (you'd expect no less eh?) We want you to have a look at old shop bought greetings cards, wrapping paper or gift bags which you have received in the past and recycle any elements to make a card of your own.
You could use them to make backgrounds, cut small focus pieces out, or use the flowers, ribbon and other interesting bits and pieces that are often attached to the cards.

So there you go! Simple eh? So come on join in and reuse, go green, start recycling!
Here are some from the design team to get you started.

I used the patterned paper tutorial as inspiration for this card. The black circle at the bottom covers up another initial. See it at
