You Deserve A Gold Heart

For this creation, I recycled organza ribbon from a gift, giving it new life and another purpose.

The gold hearts are brads, but I removed their spokes because I don't like having them show on the inside of the card.

Have your recycled something recently? What was it?
This card was submitted to these challenge blogs.

Hi Corrinne
Beautiful card! Lovely colour combo, gorgeously embossed too. Love the way you tied those ribbons for the heart to sit snuggly and fit nicely into your design. When it comes to brads I also take their spokes off unless I use them to hold something.

Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I would like to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and by no means seem to get something done.

Corrine - This is gorgeous! Green and purple is one of my favorite combos (you should see my house ;) ). Love how you recycled the bow for your card. I've been known to do that too! Thanks for playing along at Shopping Our Stash this week.
