Recycling Rewards - Going Green

My goodness, i managed to make a NON Christmas card!
The Basic Grey Challenge this time is Going Green, and you have to use something recycled.
This card kinda made itself as once i had picked a few random bits for the recycling part of the challenge {string, light wood bark, bubble wrap} it felt like it should have quite a natural look, so i found some fab BG papers to suit, the INFUSE pad was just the job.
I also happened across another Hänglar image {can't remember where on earth i got these but wish i had more} which was coloured with copic's.
I stapled a torn segment of bubble wrap on, threaded the string through a series of holes i had punched out and stamped the wording onto the small pieces of wood bark.
And here is my effort...


Oh and i also stamped ivy in 2 of the corners to finish it off.
xx Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas xx
