Recycled - Love to You

Hello Blog Friends - today's card involves something we are becoming more aware of - recycling!  I have recycled since I was young and love the feeling of creating something lovely out of something that would otherwise be disguarded.

The gorgeous (and so comfortable looking) chair has been recycled from a catalogue - it was just too lovely to throw away. It has been hand cut using scissors and adhered to KaiserCraft patterned paper, that has been sitting on my desk for YEARS..

Both the card base and patterned paper have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine and A2 Curved Matting Basics Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Card Creator.

Heart Braid has been added along with a sentiment from Penny Black Inc. 
Want2Scrap  bling has been adhered to the corners.  Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner have been used on this card.

This card is for the following challenges: 
Clear It Out - Challenge Theme: Anything Goes Stash: Anything Goes
 Through The Craft Room Door - Always Anything Goes 
Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes / Summer Fun 
Crafting from the Heart - Always Anything Goes  
 Sunday Stamper - Patterned Paper
