MR. & MRS.

The Paper Players' challenge this week is "going green" - use something recycled on your card.  I often save cards that have a potential for remaking into a new card.  The recycled part of my card is the embossed piece with the sentiment in silver on the bottom right.  It was the front of a thank you from a recently married couple.  I couldn't get the sentiment to show up very well in the photo, but it says Mr. & Mrs.


I trimmed the piece down and matted it in black.  The flower and leaves were colored with Zigs - covered the whole flower with spectrum noir clear, added a few sequins and done.

I am also entering this in Color Throwdown.

 

Thanks for stopping by today and also for your kind comments.
