Furry Friends and some Recycling

This project is to support the 'Furry Friends' challenge at Crafty Little Fairies and also the 'Recycled item' challenge at As You Like It Challenge.

By far, my favourite item to recycle is ribbon.  The piece I've used on this card was taken from the shoulder seam of a purple top.  You know those thin little straps they put inside the shoulders, supposedly to help them stay on a hanger, but all they seem to do is poke out the neckline so you spend all day poking them back inside!  So I cut them out, and recycle them of course!

Although it looks black in the photo, the ribbon is actually a lovely deep satin purple, to match the card.

Gorgeous card, Annette. Your colouring of that sweet image is wonderful.

I have always cut those ribbons off too, and use them often. I love the comment by Carol S. about training her friends to give her their cut-off ribbons...must try that one!

I do the same with those little ribbons on clothes, in fact I get quite upset if they don't have any for me to cut off and recycle!
The shades of purple are just gorgeous and your design is fabulous :-)
Big hugs, Kat x
