It's Wednesday so it's time for another challenge at Fab 'n' Funky, I do hope you all enjoyed the blog hop last week and if you joined in hop over to the Challenge Blog to see if you have won one of the fab prizes that were on offer.

Our sponsors this week are Digital Delights and Crafts U Print and the challenge is "Recycle". For my DT card I have recycled the ribbon which was from a box of chocolates and the backing paper which was the wrapper from an Amaretti biscuit. The image I used is Charlotte Ketto by Stamping Bella, I coloured her with Copics and paper pieced her dress, the swirl was cut with a Cheery Lynn die, border cut with a Martha Stewart edge punch, flowers are from Wild Orchid, other papers from my stash, I added a pearl buckle and computer generated sentiment.

I would also like to enter this card for the following challenges:

Allsorts - Paper Piecing
Papertake Weekly - Use a die cut and make it cute
There She Goes - Paper Piecing

  9. Hey Pat!! The wrapping from the biscuit is one heck of a good idea - it looks to me like gorgeous paper. Caught my eye right off the bat! I love to paper piece too and this dress looks very stylish! You have done a nice job here but most of all I adore your biscuit paper. I gotta go now, I have to run out and see if I can buy me some biscuits!!
