In honor of Earth Day, the required elements are an owl & something recycled. For challenge details & to enter click HERE. You can also check out the fab projects from my Getting Cricky Design Team sisters! It is still open for another week (until May 5th), so come on over & play with us! The winner will receive a surprise K Andrew Designs stamp set!
Here is my card....
The card base is white cardstock & the size is 4 x 8". All of the paper is from the DCWV "The Green Stack", which is made from 70% recycled paper. The only thing that isn't from this stack are the green stems, for which I used some shiny green paper from my scraps. All of the critters & the grass are either punched or hand cut elements from the stack.
I went kind of punch crazy with this card! My father in law just bought me some brand new Martha Stewart punches from HSN & they are soooo awesome! For the flower tops I used my Fiskars scalloped circle punch, regular circle punch & the "Circle Loop" punch from Martha Stewart. For the stems I used the "Trellis Loop Trim" punch from Martha Stewart. I snipped off some of the loops to make them look more like stems. I inked most of the edges with Martha Stewart ink in "Chocolate".
The sentiment is from the K Andrew Designs stamp set called "Winter Wishes". I heat embossed it using Recollections embossing powder in "Clear Bark".
