I used recycled soda cans from Orange Crush, Pepsi, Coke, and 7 Up for this fun ATC. The base is cardboard from a recycled cereal box. The silver background is the backside of a Pepsi can embossed with the "Tiny Bubbles" Cuttlebug folder. The flowers, leaves, and arrow are die cut with Cuttlebug dies. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.
With exception of the brads, I think it's about 95 percent recycled materials.
A very fun project!
Thanks for stopping in to take a look.

OMGosh, what a brilliant idea! Soda cans were the one thing I recycle and don't hoard for that 'some day I may need this' stash ... and now .... what an inspired piece of art! GREAT repurposing and totally cool card!!!

This is amazing! It looks like something one would see in a modern art museum. The colors, design -- all of it -- is splendiferous! And I especially love the arrow pointing at the "please recycle" oval. You rocked it out of the trash can, girl!
