Side by Side

I tend to save all sorts of items like containers and other packaging in hopes to recycle it. I held onto some nice sturdy cardboard pieces from a cookware set I purchased over a year ago. I finally got around to covering one of the larger circle pieces into this gorgeous wall hanging. What a great way to display a picture of my husband and I. We don't often get good pics of each other together, always focused on the kids or scenery.

I started with a pink card stock base stamped with flourish background stamp. I pulled out some older B&T papers for the next circular layer. This paper was glued to a card stock base as well, but I pleated some organdy black ribbon in between. I pulled out some various new and old stamps and also found some older felt pieces. You may remember the teeny tiny roses from earlier this week, well here are some larger roses with lots of glitter glitz on the petals. Check out all the close up pics. I am thrilled with the outcome and hope it inspires you to decorate and recycle!








I hope you enjoyed some of the blooms I've shown this week. Tomorrow is the card exchange and I will have those blooming cards posted very soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
