Bah Humbug Challenge - Going Green

Morning Everyone,

Wow I have just got this card finished photographed and uploaded to the site in time. 
This card is for this weeks challenge on the Bah Humbug blog for the challenge "Going Green"
Here is what I did.
The card is an A4 Dark Green card blank, with a piece of backing paper I saved from a magazine, this is matted onto the green card and finished with a gold peel off (actually it is the left over section from a peel off) the topper is a Sugar Nellie stamp called Winter Wonderland, I have coloured it in using Pro Marker Pens. The image is matted onto green card stock the same colour as the base and again edged with the left over peel offs, I have then matted this onto cream card stock, which is recycled from a card that went wrong. The card is then finished with a bow, a sentiment I pinched from a Christmas card I received last year (don't worry it was originally a shop bought card) and the stars are what was left from the confetti I had on my Christmas table last year.

When I first found out it was recycling a little grown come from me, but as soon as I started looking in my box, loads of stuff come pouring out, so if I actually think about it the only thing that is brand new is the stamped image, and the bow.
