Inspired to be Crafty by being Green
I haven't been feeling very crafty lately (so you can safely assume that's why I haven't posted in 3 weeks), but that all change when I was getting ready to throw away an empty Reynolds Wrap 100% Recycled Aluminum* box. I know it sounds odd, but it's rather neat how the idea came to me. As I was throwing the box in the garbage, I paused and did a double take on the packaging. It immediately dawned on me that I had an embellishment in the making right in my hands. Not only could I be creative but green all at the same time. I used the tree on the packaging for the focal point on my card. The rest of the card is pretty simple. I used the sketch from the Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #8, a little added texture here and there, some sponging (which I haven't completely mastered the art of), some punching and some ribbon and VOILA! I'm quite happy with the results. Let me know what you think.
