Earth Day coming up 22 April.  RRR:  reduce-reuse-recycle.  

I re-used recycled packaging snippets: embossed,  torn, and diecut.  Also offcuts of gold mirror card.  The background is card I had previously experimented on, with splashes of blue.  Stamped on it, chopped it down into a slim panel.  Gold for precious and enduring, blue for the atmosphere.

Stamp: Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous 

EF: Craft Concepts

Stacked sentiment: Wplus9

Also: DI's (splatter), Perfect Pearls copper mist (metallic), Nuvo Crystal drops, mirror card

Love how creative you were with the corrugated packaging embossed and torn border... love it. And the stamped globe is perfect against your pale blue background. Thank you for sharing your beautiful card with us at Double Trouble and Inspiration Station.
