JB12-9...Earth day recycling

Hello!  Just a reeeaaaallllly quick post to add my Jingle Belles card to the mix.  With this SLOW dial-up, I hope I make it in time!  We were to reduce, reuse, recycle in accordance with Earth day a few weeks ago.  My tree was originally on a gift bag that a present was received in last Christmas.  Of course, I pulled it off to use again in some way!  I tried to keep the rest of the card pretty simple to let the tree shine...so to speak!  I added the paint chip star to cover a boo-boo, and then colored a piece of bling to match.  Make sure you head on over to Jingle Belles to see the rest of this week's amazing entires!

Take care!

  6. What a great card! I love the dimension of the tree.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am not sure what the name of that Martha Stewart snowflake is but it is the first one that came out and I am not sure it is made anymore. She has two large snowflakes this is the one with the rounded edges. The newest one has square edges.
