Pollycraft Monday Challenge Recycling!

Good Morning Pollycrafters!

Hope you all had a good weekend??
It was a quiet one here, Hubby has been working, and my (not so) little man has been either making snails do skateboarding stunts, or creating water filtration systems in the back garden...
(don't ask!)

So... its Monday so its time for a new pollycraft challenge!

its the lovely Emmas turn this week, and she's decided on...
 RECYCLING!!

its a fun one this... its fab looking at things in a different way... I'm pretty much like this all the time anyway!
I SAVE EVERYTHING...
I have a cupboard in my craft room FULL of old clothes, scrap cardboard... and all sorts of junk... lol!

anyway, I'm waffling...
Heres my card...

I'm really into making shaped cards lately... The truth is I'm out of large Square card blanks, and I have trouble fitting everyhting I want to on smaller ones... But I find if you make the shape interesting, you can add less detail... (does that make sense?)
Anyway, this is bascically a circle, and lots of small semi circles...

I havent used ANY DIGITAL STAMPS for this one... I dug out my rubber!!

I've used Sonny Honeycloud - Rainy days... I wanted to use the Stamp version so it was easier to paper piece the umbrella...
The papers are pink paisley bayberry cottage, and DCWV rockstar, i've just cut strips and alternated them...
The shiny 'fabulous' is cut from the same DCWV paper...
For the sentiment I've used the 'you make' from one of the Critters and Cogs setiment set,
and the 'every day' from the sonny says sentiment set....

I love just stamping part sentiments and mixing them up to create new greetings!!!

My recycled elements are:

a magnetic fastener from an old bag...
a yo yo flower mae of cord from old trousers
mesh from a belt tie thingy on an old top
and some ric rac which was wrapped around a birthday gift...

to finish I've just added a few raindrops, and gems...

SPECIAL OFFER FOR my readers...

The full set of these Sonny Clear stamps... including sentiments... is already on a special buy...
I'm giving you a further £10 off!!
