St Lukes Mid month post...

This is my mid month post for the St Lukes Charity card challenge which is all about recyling things you would normally throw away.
For my Birthday one of my daughters came me a M & S Gift voucher which came in a beautiful card which I kept as it was too pretty to throw away so I decided to use the front of it on my card.  Its quite big so didn't need to add much else.  The ribbon is also recyled as hidden behind the image is a black ink stain as I left open my ink pad a dropped the ribbon on top!  I added the bow and of course the flower, leaves and pearls.....


You still have time to make a card for this challenge and you could be this months winner so come on crafters get your thinking caps on...

Beautiful & great spot of recycling - those M&S gift card holders are stunning these days so great to use them! x

I'd never have guessed that lovely topper was a recycled item - the latest word seems to be 'repurposed' which I read lately. Lovely card - time flies when you're having fun!!

This is just fabulous Anne, I love the perfume bottle shape, and great save with the sweet bow to cover the ink spot! I've done that myself many times!

Karen said...

Don't blame you for saving this to reuse Anne - it's lovely. Glad it's not just me who gets messy.

Jenny said...

That's a great job of recycling Anne, the bottle shape is quite a centrepiece for your card :)
I'm always having mishaps with ink pads left open!!! tut tut

Yes, it would be a shame to throw away such gorgeous paper! It's a lovely card Anne!

Vicky Hayes said...

Ah the open ink pad! I've been there too Anne! Your card is lovely - I love the bottle shape and your embellishments make it look really special.

Deborah Frings said...

I can see why you kept the card - it's so pretty, and I love the ribbon and pearls - just a really feminine card!

I love this - it is called "a bottle of goodness" or should it be "a bottle of beauty" -- wonderful card Anne!
