The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.

Hi folks!
This week over on The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge the theme is recycling. For this card I recycled some ribbon that came from a gift box that was given to my daugther. I was saving it to use in her hair, luckily she likes mummy's card. Looking at it now, I should have ironed it first! I have used my Rosabella & Drake image again. They have been coloured with Prismacolour pencils, Sansodor and paper stumps. I have used some Cosmic Shimmer watercolours for their wings and finished off with some glitter. I used my deckle edge scissors to cut the layered heart from mirri board. Would you believe that the papers are a freebie download from the Papercraft Inspirations magazine. I don't usually use the freebie papers as I find they are quite thin and shiny. However I noticed that you can download as many free sheets as you like from their website. Which means you can choose what to print them on. I've printed mine on the same Linen card that I use to stamp on and they have come out beautifully.
Hope you are having a great day.
Sandra xx
