Our Daily Bread Designs {Challenge 10}

Can you believe this is our 10th challenge already? How fun! This week the ODBD Challenge Team is challenging you to "Recycle." Since April 22nd is Earth Day, the team thought we would challenge you to recycle. You can use a recycled item on your creation (sponging bubble wrap, foil embossing) or use it for a technique to create your creation. Be creative and have fun with it!

For my "recycled" card, I decided to recycle some string that was tied around some fabric I purchased, and I recycled a piece of the box. :) These two items were perfect for a masculine card! I used the new ODBD set called "Happy Father's Day" for my card. I just love this set! It's hard to find masculine stamps, and this set is amazing!
Papers: Memory Box licorice notecard, Aquarelle watercolor paper
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs Happy Father's Day
Stamp Ink: VersaFine onyx black, Adirondack espresso EP, VersaMark
Embellishments: string and cardboard from packaging, Derwent watercolor pencils, misc. eyelets, sewing machine

I hope you will join us in the "recycling" challenge! Be sure to see what the other challenge team members recycled. You can see their creations here:

Patter what wonderful idea, I grew up in the fifties and my grandmother didn't throw away anything. She found some use for it, usually crafty type projects. God bless your wonderful weekend.

Hi Patter!!!! I'm so glad I stumbled onto your blog!! Now I can keep up with your busy design schedule! (I don't know how you do it!!) This card is so lovely, I like the masculine feel to it, and the ruggedness of the cardboard and string, adds so much to the card!

Take care, and look forward to your updates!
