The challenge at Polka Doodles this week is Go Green and Recycle. I was looking for some gold leaf for another project and came across this set. It was only a cheapie set but ideal for what I wanted. When I opened the packaging, the gold and silver leaf were in separate pieces of card which make perfect card blanks.
I've printed a background from the Sugarplum Daisy CD for the inside and Piper sitting from the Pretty Sweet CD. I've added some acetate behind the aperture (from a Bigz die packaging) and stuck on some birds again from the Sugarplum Daisy CD. As the card blank was so pretty, the only other thing I've added is the JustRite greeting and a small piece of ribbon recycled from a top and coloured with Promarkers.
To me she looks like she's sitting at the window wishing she was allowed out. I did think of adding some spots to her face as if she had measles but thought that would be too limiting so I've made it a simple get well card.
I'm also entering this into the Little Red Wagon challenge this week which is Pretty Packaging and I think this is just perfect.
Now to get back to my original idea - no wonder my desk is always a mess!
