90% Going Green

Hi Everyone,

Here is a quick card that I made -seriously quick (I love it when that happens). When I was on Julee's site I saw this  card and loved the layout - and I had to try it. This is a layout that Deb Albright made for Julee (check it out here). Almost all the materials in this card were from recycled products - the papers are from K & Company (4x6 recycled mat) in the Earth tones. 
These papers are really pretty - my photo of the card is not a great pic and doesn't really do them justice - but I love these new papers. The Prima flowers and brads (from Spare Parts) are recycled in a way - because they were on a card that I made for my friend, but my one year old daughter got to it before I could put it away and so I reused the elements that I could salvage... that's kind of recycling right?? and it also teaches me the valuable lesson of cleaning up my area after crafting). I punched the squares out with my Creative Memories Square punch and the assembly was so quick I couldn't believe it was all done. The ribbon is from Offray. 
So it was really only the ribbon and main cardstock for the card that was not part of any recycling process - so this is a mostly green card. Fun and good for the environment!!  ;)
I can't believe today is only tuesday - it feels like it should be friday again! The last two days have been so full of activity - it feels like its been a week.
Hope all of you are enjoying your day!
Ciao for now!
Sankari :)
