This card was created for two challenges, Mojo Monday 186 and Heart 2 Heart's Reduce, Reuse, Recycle challenge for this week.
The colors I used for this card are Garden Green, Twilight, and Garnet. The papers are from CTMH's Veranda paper back, and the butterfly stamp is from CTMH's Friendship. The sentiment is from Verve.
Can you guess what portion of my card is re-used to fulfill H2H's challenge?
Here's a Hint:
I used the back of a paper pack label. This cardstock is really good quality, and I have used it for layering for years, but this is the first time I have stamped on it. I think it stamps beautifully! I will be using this "free" paper more from now on!!!
I also used mostly scraps from yesterday's scrapbook layout.
I stamped the butterfly in Versamark ink, then in Twilight, and finally rolled the edges in Garden Green. I then heat embossed with CTMH's fine, clear embossing powder.
Thanks for looking, and for all of you that take the time to comment. I love to hear from you! :o)

I love how these pages came together. My eldest daughter just headed off to college this spring, and these are a few of her senior pictures.
I used all kinds of CTMH goodies in this layout. Papers are from the Veranda paper pack, buttons are from the green collection, colors are juniper and cocoa.
The stamped butterfly is from CTMH D1453 Friendship. I stamped first in versamark, then in juniper, and finally rolled the edges in Garden Green. After stamping, I heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I created 2 versions of this card because I couldn't decide between pearls or sparkles for the bling. What do you think?
The green cardstock is from My Mind's Eye. Sentiment and flower stamps from SU, Elegant Thank You and Baby Blossoms. The Pink cardstock and ink is Hollyhock from CTMH. I also used pink seam binding for the ribbon, buttons, and crocheted lace.
Thanks for looking!

I really enjoyed making this card. Colors are CTMH Hollyhock, Blush, and Sweet Leaf. (My favorite green?) The B&T paper comes from the Wings paper pack. The sentiment is from CTMH (It's lost somewhere on my stamp table???), the flowers in the background are some new SU stamps I've been playing with.
The ribbon is made from some seam binding I just got in, and there is a crocheted flower under the handmade paper rose. There are also two white ribbon flowers from some trim I found at Joanne's.
Here's the direct link to the paper rose tutorial:
Thanks for looking!
