Simon Says is having a “green” week. I chose the Green of using up cycled materials. My chipboard frame and canvas are up cycled packaging materials. My bow is even a very very thin piece of cardstock that I trimmed off something yesterday. It came off all curly and I thought this would make a cute bow. It did. It looks like twine. The rest of the card pieces are scraps. Before I throw away a scrap I check to see if I can make a die cut banner out of it or a butterfly punch or heart or if I can use it to paper piece something, like this bird. I put those pieces all in bags and go to them when I need embellishments. I love to stamp GREEN.
Stamp is Mark’s Finest Papers May Release Marsh Birds. Inside says: From one old bird to another. With a bird stamped beside the sentiment.
This turned out so cute I am going to make another right now for a friend whose 60th birthday party we will be going to on Friday. (she’s just a youngster, three years behind me. )
