Whimsical Designs "Recycle It" Challenge

Happy Wednesday all!!!

This week over at Whimsical Designs we are stampin' out our carbon footprint (haha) by recycling!
The theme is to "Recycle It", create any project and use something you would normally throw out.

Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is Inky Impressions with a $10 gift certificate to their store up for grabs!!

I used a darling image by Inky Impressions, called Birthday Girl, for my card. I colored her with Copics and did a little paper piecing, using Vintage T papers, for her jeans and vest. I fired up my Cameo and cut out a park bench and some grass. I recycled a couple of coffee stir sticks for the posts the banners are on and stamped them with two darling sentiments from Stephanie's Everyday Sentiments.

Supplies used: card stock - vanilla, 2 shades of green, brown, black; patterned papers - Vintage-T 6x6 paper pad by We R Memory Keepers, Barefoot Stripe in Barefoot by BoBunny; digital image - Inky Impressions; Copic markers; stamps - Everyday Sentiments by Whimsical Designs; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; coffee stir sticks; Silhouette Studio cut files; Pop Dots.

The design team has some fabulous ideas to spark your creativity and give you some "recycling" ideas so head on over to Whimsical Designs to check them out!!!

OMGosh this is so adorable. Everything about it is so perfect- from the colors to the sentiment to the embellishments. The little girl is charming. I also like the way you used the stirring sticks because they give the posts a perfect aged look. GREAT JOB !!
