Freshly Made Sketches #45 with a Recycled Item

Here is my entry for FMS45. I was inspired to enter this challenge by a card made by Alisa Chilton, a fellow CTMH consultant and DT member. I used Close To My Heart Outdoor Denim CS and Cranberry CS. The stamps are from Beautiful Friendship B1400 and 4 My Friend D1510. The stamp images were embossed with CTMH White Embossing Powder. A Blue Sparkle was applied to the medallion center.
Here is the sketch:
Where do you think I got the patterned paper from? It's not from a paper pack--it is the printed pattern from a security envelope that one of my bills came in!
Thanks for stopping by to check out my card. I enjoy reading your comments.


  1. The card is very attractive. The embossed image is clean and lovely. And the paper is really clever. I like your work!

  2. Holy recycling batman! I think I'll have to check my mail a little more closely from now on! I love these colors and the blue bling in the center of the medallion is perfect! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  3. Now that is clever! I might not look at my bills the same way! Such a pretty medallion. Glad you joined us this week at FMS!

  4. Love your use of your envelope - how "green" of you! :) And you made such a lovely creation - simple and elegant. Thanks for playing along with this week's sketch!

  5. Great card and I love that you used the inside of a used envelope. I save all the extra envelopes that come with the annoying credit card offers. I'm going to have to look through my stack to see if there are some interesting patterns that can be salvaged.
