Pixie Cottage/ Recycle Elements & Cupcake's Creations Color Challenge

It is Recycled Elements day at the Pixie Cottage. My recycled item is the textured packing paper I snagged from work. My flourish and jewels were a gift from my friend Martha. I sprayed my white paper with aqua shimmer mist and then stitched onto the teal.Punched flowers and border.

I was trying to stick to the color theme at Mona's new Cupcake's Creations Color Blog so decided not to color my cardinal. It is one of the beautiful new bird stamps at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More by ARTish. Our team has lots of great "recycled" creations so stop by to see them and while you are there show us what you have created.
