The Ribbon Reel #53 - Spring Joy and a "Green" recycled card...

Hi!


It's a new challenge at The Ribbon Reel and Debbie is our host.  You are asked to use the colors in the inspiration photo plus a bunny and of course ribbon! 
The Ribbon Reel Supplies used:
This is recycling at it's best: I had started a card for a challenge a month ago and due to a family emergency my "extra for fun" crafting time has been put on the back burner a bit, so I never completed the card.  I had the row of stamped flowers started along the bottom and that is where I stopped. The original card was going to have them stamped at the top as well as the sides, so when I saw the current challenge for The Ribbon Reel I was delighted to be able to use this card.  
I have several "green" things on this card. I cut the frame from a cereal box using my cricut and painted with acrylic paint and sanded the edges. I also cut the bunny image using my cricut and running through my Xyron to create a sticker to apply the glitter. Next I used a brown paper bag to cut my banner and layered all on the green patterned paper that was in my "scrap" pile. Finishing touches include adding, ribbon, buttons, twine and the sentiment Spring Joy from Paper Sweeties Jelly Bean Time

How about this darling inspiration photo!!!!
Please head over to The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog to see what the other talented ladies have created for you.  We hope you join us in the gallery over the next two weeks for your chance to win some Ribbon Reel goodness. 

Thank you for visiting me!
