Now this is Recycled!

       I used newspaper on the base of my card today and i even made the flowers out of it. First i punched the flowers and then I used distress crackle paint to cover the flowers in 2 different colors Picket fence and Tattered Rose. The distressing on the base and over the crackle paint is Burlap. FUN, FUN! The image is a Karens Doodles digi called "Donkey". I used Spellbinders circle dies for the base of the image. This was a lot of fun to create. I missed the Karen's Doodles challenge deadline though. That is disappointing!
