About half this card is made of recycled materials. The Paris image is an old card front I saved....my sister’s handwriting is on the back ....the doily is cut from old sheet music I got in an antique store and the silver embellishments are called bookmark ends. These came from a store near me called Art Scraps and it is exactly what you’d think...scraps and leftovers from art projects...I like to go there now and then and see what I can find..A lot of it works for kid projects but I have found some neat stuff for card making, too.

Polly, you win the prize for most recycling on a card. (J/K - there is no prize - other than the satisfaction of a job well done). You have really done an amazing job with so many different recycled items and they all go together so beautifully! Sheet music - a great idea! And that treasured card front from your sister. Cool! BUT... I think I need a road trip. Those silver embellishments make me want to visit that Art Scraps store. Hmmm... wonder how far I am from there??? It sounds like an awesome store and your card is one of their best advertisements, I'm sure!
Thanks for going From Trash to Treasure with me today!
