BasicGrey DT -recycled

Happy Saturday Peeps!!!!
Today over at the Fab Basicgrey challenge Blog we have the challenge to use something recycled on your project!! Wow this one had me stumped!! he he!!! but at the eleventh hour it all came together!!
I have used the georgous Curio papers again!! I have coloured this sweet tilda in with my copics! distressed the edges with a combo of brushed cordroy, aged paper and a touch of broken china! the design around the edge has been stamped with memento rich cocoa! So my recycled stuff included the tag which was a piece of packing from one of my crafts parcels!! and the ribbon which believe it or not came wrapped around a towel bale!!!!
PROOF!!! he he!! I distressed the ribbon a little with the brushed cordroy to make it match better!! the flowers are prima!
Well thats all folks don't forget to pop along to the Basicgrey challenge to see the fab examples my uber talented teamies have made!!! you won't be disapointed!!!
The challenges I would like to enter this card into are:
Just magnolia - fav colour scheme (brown and blue!!Yumm!!)
Papertake weekly - trio tastic (flowers!)
Quirky crafts - sketch
Thanks for popping by have a wonderful weekend!!!
