Recycling With French Flair

Well...we've recycled, reused, repurposed, and renewed everything within our grasp this month. This has really been a fun challenge for the month of April for the Stampendous team, and we hope that you've had fun playing along as well.

For my final post for the month, I decided to go in baguette, that is! I picked up a loaf at the Trader Joe's when I was "down the hill" last week, and saved the paper wrapper bag that it came in. This became the basis for my card. I broke out the Stampendous Cling I Love Paris image, stamped and embossed it in Aged Black Embossing Enamel. Then I stamped and embossed the Cling Leaf Swirl with Aged Copper Embossing Enamel, added several sprinkles and puddles of both enamels indiscriminately over the card, before finishing it off with a scrap of pompom trim, ribbon, twine, and the foil cap from one of my favorite bottles of wine (unfortunately...not French)... I just liked the regal crown imprinted on it! Besides, if you are drinking wine while creating, you are entitled to a little artistic license...even in recycling!

The winner for this month's challenge will receive this fabulous Perfectly Clear Mother's Love set:

 Be sure to play along with us in May as we are full of great gifty ideas! Meanwhile, check out what the rest of the team has been up to this week:

Wonderful colors on this card and get real, I'd love to use the baguette wrapper. Genius idea, Pam.

Oh, Pam, I love it! My favorite shade of green! Of course I love anything Paris related. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that keeps bags from deli's and other places of that nature!
