Prettie Wednesday....Sort Of....

Two weeks ago, Jules challenged us to use trash on a card. Yup...you read that right. She wanted us to go dumpster diving to find our supplies! That is really doing a favour for the earth, wouldn't you say?!



I did use a piece of trash on the card that I have to share with you today, however, there isn't a Prettie stamp on it...gasp! Actually, there is *almost* no stamping on this card at all! I used a stamp only for the sentiment...and the rest was just some creative handy work!


For the shirt, I made myself a little template out of cardboard that I found in my recycling box and tweaked it until I was happy with the shape. I then made the shirt out of my patterned paper using the template. The shirt is popped up and the collar of the shirt is popped up another level, as is the knot of the tie. The circle was cut using my Coluzzle circle template and knife. The papers are all from my scrap bin. The sketch was the Sketch For You To Try from July 12th....although I opted not to use a divided circle on my card. The ink is Sweet Leaf from CTMH. I used brads from the JoAnn Scrap Essentials line and an SU! punch to make the upper corners.


The sentiment stamp is from an acrylic Stampendous set called For Him. This tie was stamped from this set also.


My piece of trash is the soda ('pop' in Canada!!) can tab that connects the ribbon to the sentiment. As I was making this card I also realized that it uses a circle...so it can count for the challenge Danielle issued a few weeks back to use a circle on a card too! :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
