So here is another secret of mine...I love shopping bags of all kinds and I save the best ones. Trouble is, I don't always know what or when I will use them so they tend to hang around for awhile....lol. But then a cool idea strikes and I have the perfect thing! That was the case here as I cut up a shopping bag I had
And look at that! Elegant Eggplant is the perfect match to one of the stripes in this "paper". I gave my ribbon the scrunchy treatment and offset a sentiment from a Papertrey Ink set stamped in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla and popped out with the Decorative Label punch. Elegant, yes?
The inside treatment left plenty of room for my handwritten note with a skinny strip of the paper bag paper on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Of course, I wrote my note with my Early Espresso marker to match the card base! I hope he likes it! Anyway, thanks for indulging my recycled card. I just know there are a few of you out there who recognize the bag and will appreciate the re-purposing! Enjoy your day, my friends!
Don't forget...the Virtual Canopy Club is still open! :-)
