News Print and Glimmer Mist Grung Card



Hi Everyone!

I played along with the girls in the Split Coast Stampers WT347 Ways to Use It challenge "Extra!...Extra!Read All About It!" We were asked to use newspaper in our creations.


I figured "Why stop with just recycling news paper?". Almost everything on this card is recycled!
The card base itself is chipboard packaging from some paper that I received from one of my design teams (Discount Card Stock). The flower and leaves are also made form it. My heart was made from some corrugated packing that I "hoarded" and some foil from last night's baked potatoes. :)
The ribbon was just about tossed a week ago when I got a big glob of glue on it rendering it (what I thought at the time) useless.
The stamps are both from Stampers Anonymous' ~ Tim Holtz Collection. They are "Admit One" and "Fabulous Flourishes".. 


I used Walnut Gold and  Meadow Green Glimmer Mists to glam it up.
The ribbon and trim are both from Really Reasonable Ribbon. They are Silky Crush Antique Gold, and Black Licorice baker's Twine that I sprayed with some Glimmer Mist to stain.
I hand cut the leaves and for the flower, I used this new Rolled Rose Die that I am soooo in love with!


I would love to hear what you think about my card since it's not my normal style!

Thanks for taking a closer look!

Hugs,
True :D
