A Recycled Birthday Card

Today's cute card features lots of embellishments, recycling and the super adorable Humphrey image 
"Make A Wish" from the "A Year With Humphrey" Collection.  
You may be wondering where the recycling comes in. It's in the actual card itself! Recycling is a good idea, especially if you have cards that you have not used, sold or dismantled. You can remove elements, switch up the design and you have a whole new card. I call it "Thrift-craft" and it is very useful for those days you can't think of a gosh darn thing to do. I loved the layout of the above card but never passed it on. I added and deleted embellishments and came out really pleased with the result.  Don't be afraid to reuse those things you love but haven't been able to part with.  
This adorable image, the Spectrum Noir markers and a heck of a lot more fun stuff to shop for are available at Crafter's Companion. Please stop by and snoop around the site, there is great stuff at very reasonable prices. Also, don't forget to stop back every day for fresh new inspiration from the design team.  And for chances to win goodies during May Customer Appreciation Month!!

Remember, today is the last day to enter to win this weeks stamp set giveaway.  Thanks for stopping by and looking.  Have a great week!!

Fabulous job, I love that you recycled it, I always keep items that I make for a card and then don't end up using them for that particular card and I recycle them onto another project!!
