Thinking of You - recycled plastic



This weeks dare on http://daringcardmakers.blogger.com/ was to use recycled plastic. Well, that's what they said..........I saw the word 'recycled' and immediately an idea popped into my head and I dashed off to make it. When I was uploading it, I read the dare again more carefully, not a bit of plastic on my original creation. That just sums me up, the words bull and gate jump to mind.

Anyway, this is my second try - I used the plastic protector that covers the cricut mats. Cut half the front of the card away and attached this fabulous lacy mat by KI memories to it. Two more flowers on the front, and I was done - for the second time! The stamp is by stampin up.
