Recycling for OSAAT

Good morning to you all and I hope this finds you well. Today's post is my DT card for the OSAAT challenge "Recycling".

My Card

6" square card  made from Rymans dark blue card
backing paper - LOTV Frosty Christmas (discontinued)
image - Lake in Winter Stitchy Stamps
sentiment stamp - Penny Black
recycled ribbon

I really love this image. It actually comes black and white but I changed it digitally to blue to convey the icy, wintry feel. Lashings of glitter added to the feel.  I felt the image was so serene that I didn't want to add embellishments and spoil it. My sister saves lots of bits from cards, gifts etc that she receives in case I can use any of it and this is where the lovely navy and silver ribbon comes from.  Thank you Jeanie!

Please pop over to the blog and see the inspiration from the rest of the team and maybe you will be inspired to join us. You could win $10 to spend instore.

Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

This is an amazing card Christine! And you are also in a 'blue mood' like me today! It's fun using 'old stuff' and turning it into something new, isn't it?
Best wishes and have a nice day!

It's beautiful and so frosty! Always love to see recycling with the cards, and this one's a beauty too. Love the glittered look of the trees (looks like what we sometimes see here in the winter ice storms). The saved ribbon was perfect to set off this pretty card, and you're clever to change the look to the blue as you've done on this card. TFS & Hugs
