A week or so ago one of the ladies at work found a bunch of bookmarks that we had from before the office moved. Since they have the old address on them, they are of no use to the agency any more, so she asked if I could use them for crafting. When I saw them, I knew that I could find some way to use them. I decided to use one – or at least part of one for the embellishment on a card for 2 Sketches 4 You. Since technically I am recycling at least part of one of these bookmarks for my card, I think this card will also work for the Our Creative Corner challenge this week which is recycling. Finally, the challenge over at My Time to Craft is Metallica. Now my card doesn’t have a lot of precious metals on it, I did use gold brads and the recycled piece from the bookmark is gold, so I guess this will also work for their challenge.
I kept the card fairly simple with the emphasis being on the sentiment which is the last part of the Footprints in the Sand story – which is what was on the bookmarks. I really didn’t set out to make a multi-challenge card. It just kind of happened that way.
Let me know what you think.
