Posh, Trendy, Recycle, Reuse!

Here is my project for this week for the LSS DT! I decided to use the Posh and Trendy set again today...I am totally off whack this week! I totally forgot it was Thursday! I had NO IDEA what to do for this week and I was going to do an ATC but then switched my mind to a tag...then to a card using what started out as a tag! LOL

What I did for this is reuse some old paper! It was actually reused from someone else! I received some embellies from another company to use for ReadySetCreate and the backing of their packaging was reused newspaper/old book paper so instead of throwing it away - eventho it was just a little piece - I reused it again! I then aged it even more with Tim Holtz Distress Ink! I thought it looked cool even tho I positioned it upsidedown! Oye!
HEY! Check this out...NOW is the time to BUY...

Don't forget to stop by Lindsay's blog The Frugal Crafter for this weeks freebie and more inspiration.

And...check out my sidebar for the rest of the LSS DT links and projects!

I'm entering this project in the following challenges this week:
Aly's Sunday Challenge - Dude Card
The Corrosive Challenge Blog - Recycle/Reuse
Doodle Pantry - Love
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes (Optional Flowers)

Love the paper you really did a great job distressing it. If anyone notices it is upside down, just tell them that's what makes them "just your type"lol, great card! ~Diane
