FWF: A Green Challenge

Woohoo! It's Friday! And it really is Friday (I usually write this post on Thursday but the day just got away from me.) We have a PACKED weekend again. But I kind of love it. :)

Alright, today is the SECOND ever All Things Unity Challenge! The challenge this time is to create a GREEN card. But green can mean different things. 1. You can make a card that's green in color 2. You can make a card that's recycled or reusing product 3. You can make a card only using scraps. OR you can do all three!

I choose to make a card using only scraps and some re-purposed items. The doily and flower are from the Beeez Kneez kit available at Caffinated Cropper. (Hurry, there's only 9 sets left!) The flower is actually made from an old dictionary. How cool is that? I love the way it looks and I love that it isn't "new." I painted the doily, the button, and distressed my sentiment with some Turquoise Creative Inspirations Paint. I'm gonna talk more about this paint later on this week. :) I stamped the background (Unity's Distressed Dots) in Versamark. And the sentiment from Ippity's Just Wanted To Say is in Memento Tuxedo Black. I also wanted to make this for the Moxie Fab doily and lace challenge.

Check out the rest of the DT:
