Unscripted Sketches - My first DT post

Good morning again - this is also scheduled - so I hope it appears.

This time round I am showing you my DT item for  Unscripted SketchesThis week is a slightly different take, and we are asking you to do a 'piggyback'.  Earth Day is Friday next week so to promote that, and to encourage a variety of projects, the piggyback is to recycle something.  You could use a craft item in a unique way, or use something that you've had forever (use it in a new, fresh way instead of throwing it away), but also, you could use something that isn't normally used as a craft item. Cardboard from a cereal box as the base for the cover of a mini album, crepe paper or tissue paper from your last birthday to make a flower to decorate another gift or card, etc. You get the idea. Have fun with it!

Please do pop along to the Challenge to have a look at all the wonderful pieces of work.

I have made a card and have something recycled on it.  You will have seen from my previous post that I am using quite a lot of Prima flowers.  Well they are packaging them on some very useful card with script, ledger, etc, so every piece is going into my useful bits box.

For this card I have used a new Sarah Kaye image, which I have coloured with Copics. My papers are Sumer Cottage from Daisy Bucket, which I have had forever.  This is layered on to cream cardstock.  The mount behind the image is my Prima recycled card.  To embellish I have used a large flat gardenia from Wild Orchid Crafts and some pearls.

I am entering this for the following challenges

Freshly Brewed - Cute and Sweet
Simon Says Stamp - Card for a Child
The Paper variety - Flowers

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.
