A bit of upcycling!

It's Tuesday again, where do the days go?
This week for the Try it on Tuesday challenge
you can create anything you like using the theme of UPCYCLING in other words we'd like you to recycle something or things.

This is how my card started out .

 An old paper bag

Orange net bag and an odd piece of corrugated card.

The end result.

I coloured the piece of card using a mask and Vintage Paper Distress Ink.
Cut the border panel from an odd piece of Core'dinations using an MS punch
Created the flower from the paper bag using a Spellbinders die and edged the layers with Spiced Marmalade DI
Stamped the sentiment onto a piece of the paper bag and trimmed.
Created the bow using the net bag.

Please pop over to the challenge blog to check out the DT fabulous creations and to get some ideas. Do hope you decide to join us this week, that would be great.
Have a good day,
