Recycled

Wow look at me nothing for a month and then two posts in two days! lol
I needed to get into making some cards today so I jumped in with the DCM dare and this is what I've come up with.

I'm always fond of recycling and using unconventional materials so I was up for this one.
I cut the cake and the polka dot paper bit from an old birthday card and I also used packaging for the background, it's corrugated card that I've put though the Cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder. It actually made a really cool pattern on the reverse where it embossed and squashed down the corrugated bits so I want to make some more and use the other side.
For the boarder I stitched ribbon around the edge and then tied the ends together in a bow then to finish off added a couple of blossoms and buttons and that's it really.

Thanks for another fab dare!
