Challenge #190 at The Paper Shelter ~ Recycle Something

Hi everyone,
I hope your week is going well. 

It's Wednesday and time for a new challenge at

The theme this week is a fun one...Recycle something on your creation!
I am always saving little bits that I think might come in handy some day
so this was an easy one for me.

I've Copic coloured "Connected" which can be found here.

The recycled items I have used are the white button bags.
Here is a photo of my collection...for those just in case moments.

I pulled out the blue perforated cardboard for the background.
I heat embossed the LOTV sentiment then cut it out using SB circle and scallop circle.
Flowers are from my stash
HB sentiment is a QuicKutz die

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Craft for the Craic - Happy Birthday

Thanks for stopping by today,
Pat K xx
