When I started to think about it in detail I realised that with everything else there was for me to do this week I was giving myself too big a task. So a search in the box of bits & pieces that I am always supposedto be using & a look under piles of paper on my desk revealed an item to use. Here is the card & details
The pink silk-look background paper & the focal image come from the MCS Deco Follies CD. The recycled part is a Friendly Plastic item that I made a couple of years ago with a stamped image of pansies adhered to it. It is all set on a black card & I found some black shiny ribbon which unravelled easily. So I deliberately unravelled the end to give it a fringe appearance. Then just finished it off with flat back gold pearls. The pink background paper - in real life - is identical to my pink pansies but it doesn't look so in the photo.
I am trying hard to use up stash & not create any more bits. I know that will be impossible - but whilst I was looking at all the images & papers on the CD I actually chose w backgrounds & 2 images to use. I thought it would be easier to make a decision on which one when I had printed them off. Having made the decision which ones to use & to save the others from becoming bits in a box, I used them straight away to make another card. But there is no recycling on it.
I love this era & it was very tempting to print off even more whilst I was looking - but no! no! - not until I have used up some more of my large collection of stash. I wonder how long before I weaken!!
'Bye for now - I am off to link this post to the CD Sunday Challenge - thank you for popping in.
