BasicGrey Challenge 40-something RECYCLED...

Hi!! its that time again for another BasicGrey Challenge...
We would love you to RECYCLE something
on your card/project or recycle something itself(eg- box/bag)
Please let us know which BG product(s)
you have used as there is sooo much yummy new BG crafty stash coming out :)
Such a fab prize again: $25 shopping spree at

for my card i have used two kitchen roll tubes,
i used it just plain as the backing piece
and used the rest like mount board for the flower,button,
Sizzix frame back(ornate) and the little tag.
Great with a wet glue,it makes it so pliable and feels really soft.
A bit of sanding around the edges and i
didn't ink the edges this time.
The sweetie is Running Tilda from the new
Magnolia Butterfly Dreams Collection at Sirstampalot,
the fence and snail(shrunk)are Magnolia stamps too.
The little bird(shrunk)is one i have had for a while
and i used one of the lovely new BG/Hero Arts rubber stamps-
 Luscious Ledger to stamp on the flower/background.
The paper is from the BG Green at Heart collection
and the tag is BG Sizzix Tag(layered).
To colour i used VersaColor cubes and Marvy pens.
thank you for stopping by,
there is lots of gorgeous creations from the DT
to have a peek at on the BG blog...
have a very lovely day...
hugs all,Lou.xxxxx
