Recycling is an art...

or is it just Art?
I love recycling and I was really pleased with this card for my dear Mum. I wonder if you can guess where the recycling comes into it....well the bow, button etc is from a handbag I have just thrown away!! It has also given me ideas for more decorations.

My Mum lives on her own in Cornwall and manages remarkably well considering she has been diagnosed with Parkinson's. She rings me every night and we have a wonderful relationship....she is a special lady and I am so blessed to have a Mum like her.

Card Supplies:
Card blank and layering- Stash.
Backing paper from Craft Creations and stash.
Flowers from WOC and The Range.
Half pearls from Papercellar.
Sentiment - Anita's.
Bows and button- recycled.
Corners - Bigshot and die.
Roses coloured using Pro Markers.

I would like to add this to the following challenges:
SSIC #113- Crimson, orange and gold.
Southern Girls #30 - Polka Dots and Stripes.
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Anything Goes.
Dream Valley #19 - Anything Goes.
Catch the Bug - Photo Inspiration. I used the colours.
Wags 'n' Whiskers - Black and ribbon or pearl.
