Bah Humbug Challenge 18 - Going Green

This weeks challenge theme over at Bah Humbug is 'Recycling or Shades of Green. I have gone opted with 'Recycling.
The beautiful image has been lovingly created by Vince over at
Crafty Moments  Thank you Vince for your generosity. The images were just lovely to work with.

I have made a card and matching tag. I used the already coloured in image from Crafty Moments for the main card then coloued the mini image in with ProMarkers.  My 'recycled' items are the blue scalloped fabric edging rescued from a garment and the sequin waste or Punchannella as it is also known, of which we get from the our local council scrapstore. I may have gone a bit overboard with the sequin waste! I have used it to create a mask of which gives you a nice polka dot effect. I did this using glimmer mists and a strip of the waste.  I have laid the waste over the polka dot pattern so that is doesn't quite match up with the dots.  I feel my card might need something over the small panel of sequin waste, so to make the card look a bit more 'festive' Maybe some likkle
snowflakes? I will somtime soon add to the card.

I am indeed very pleased to have came across another Christmas Card Challenge Blog. Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge 2011
