Dare To Be Sassy at Sassy Studio Designs - Going Green

The theme for the challenge this week for the Dare To Be Sassy Thursday over at the Sassy Studio Designs blog is going green!  Recycling and reusing is so important now and we as crafters can do our part in helping the environment.  How many of us have some cards, papers, or embellishments just laying around?  I know I do.  I have cards that I've put together and just wasn't really satisfied with them and never photographed them  or passed them on to others.   I think of craft recycling in terms of pulling off elements that I don't really like off of something that I've already completed  and adding it to something new that I'm working on.

Here's my going green card that I did for our going green:


This is Sexy Bride Sassy and you can find her here.  I just love her sassy pose and attitude!  She's colored with copics and has Stickles all over her dress and garter and shoes.  The pearls are from Studio 112 and the papers are from my stash.  I followed the following sketch from Digi Sketch Challenge:


You know how I really struggle with the clean and simple cards but I think I showed great restraint in not adding a lot of flowers or ribbon or tons more pearls!  Rather proud of myself, I am.




I angled the sentiment secion of the inside so you can see some of the gorgeous yellow rose on the bottom.


I'm going to be entering this hottie in the following challenges:

A and T Emerald Faeries Challenge Blog - bling
Digital Tuesday - Button or bling
Oldie But A Goody Challenge - Something at least six months old (my papers are from my stash and at least a year old!)
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
ABC Challenges - Anything goes
Created With Love - Anything goes
Make It Monday - Anything goes
MyGrafico - Anything goes
Paper Playtime - Anything goes


Head on over to our Sassy Studio Designs blog and show us how you're going green.  And also take a gander at the gorgeous projects my designing team family has to share with you all.  Nothing short of spectacular!  Go Green!

Your card is gorgeous, Susan I love that you managed to get your stickles to show in the photograph. When I use stickles I can never get them to show very well. Vee xx

This is a lovely card, I adore all the sparkle, but I have to say you haven't spotted the theme at an Oldie! As well as using something older than 6 months we set a theme, this time it's Feeling Floral and as I can't see any flowers we can't really accept your entry, sorry! On a brighter note, we are a two week challenge so you still have plenty time to do another card for us and I bet like most of us, most of your cards have flowers! Hope you've had a lovely weekend, Jx OBAG DT
