Recyled - Happiness Always

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  I have a recycled card to share with you today.  I have a friend who works in a Boutique and she saves me any novel boxes or anything she thinks I can use - she did well with this lots - there are about 2 dozen boxes and I have cut them all up ready to be reused and brought to life in  different way!

The box already had the beautiful image and the gorgeous scalloped edge - I popped it up onto an embossed background using the Spellbinders Cabbage Roses Embossing Folders and  Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L Crafty Foam Tape - the roses blend beautifully with the floral image,  This has been popped up onto a slightly larger pre-cut pink card base.

I have added a computer generated sentiment to the top right corner, below that Want2Scrap Bling has been added, along with Silver Rhinestones to each corner.  Very easy but I am sure you will agree that the image is too pretty to discard,

This card is linked to the following challenges:
