Stampendous Monthly Challenge - Re-cycle, Re-Purpose, & Re-Use

It's the first Saturday in April, and that means a new  Stampendous challenge. This month, in honor of Earth Day, the challenges is all about recycling, re-purposing or reusing.

For my card I re-purposed an old sewing pattern as my flower:


I used the beautiful Corset Ladies Perfectly Clear Stamps to create my card.  The dress form was stamped twice once in the background and again on acetate. The background was edged with the floral scroll using green and brown dye ink.

The flower was die cut from an old sewing pattern

For more inspiration:

To play along you  have until Thursday, May 3, 2012 at 11:59 PM EST to add your direct link to our collection at the end of this post (or on the Stampendous blog).  You do not have to use Stampendous products.  The prize (drawn at random) is this a lovely Mother's Love Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.  Available in stores now, it will be on the website for purchase soon!

Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address.
