Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Happy Monday everyone!!  Thank you Lori for asking me to host today's challenge.

My challenge is Going Green.....  With St.Patrick's Day later this week everyone is doing green challenges so I wanted to something different for my challenge, but still do something green.  The environment is a big concern for me and I am always looking for ways to use items more than their expected life.  So my challenge is to use something that you would normally throw away in your creation.  It can be anything from soda pop can tabs, cereal boxes, paperclips etc.  Anything you can think of.    You don't even have to use green, but feel free to use it if you want.

Here is my card.

Can you figure out what I used??   The tag is a formica sample that I have covered with patterned paper and then stamped a sentiment on.  I think that the tag could easily used for a key chain by adding a jump ring and a keyring thingy.    I used Melanie's  Stately Flowers 3  for this card.  The bitterroot flower is colored with copics and then cutout and placed on a sponged circle that was cutout with nestabilities.  

Please create and upload a new project for this challenge. You may not link a previous card/project.  There is no combining of Stamp TV challenges allowed to be eligible to win a prize.  However, you can combine it with challenges outside of Stamp TV.  And remember you don't have to use Gina K. Designs stamps, but if you do your name will go into the drawing twice.

Please use the challenge code STV12MON8 on your submissions.  Deadline for this challenge is Sunday, March 18, 2012 at 8:00 p.m. CST.

Wonderful challenge, love the recycling idea and your card is stunning 

Oh what a gorgeous card Brenda!!!  And I love that tag.....hmmm....I will see if I can play along!!

I love your card and the great tag too. I have to think on this one but I am always recycling things it seems. So it should work out for me as well to join this one later on. Hmmmmm! What should I do?

What a great card and a fun challenge!

LOVE this idea, Brenda!  Awesome! 

That is so clever Brenda!  Very pretty card.

I had to blow my nose and what did I behold but a beautiful photo of lilacs on a tissue box done in the nicest honey colored hue. I knew what would be used on my card. Here is my Easter Glory.
