Hi, There!

We should recycle whenever we can so I was happy to say that I found the perfect spot for these recycled earrings.  I painted them here and there with the blue to match the colors in the card.   Then I was wishing I still had them to wear in that color!  LOL  The digital image is from Sugar Nellie called Sophia - what a dream to color and I added some gloss to her eyes.  I had to make my own card for the background as I got carried away with the size of the DP and realized too late I did not have the right card size to mount it!  But there are no mistakes in art!!  So I went forward with a larger size card then usual and liked the results!  Fussy cut the tag label that I stamped the sentiment on.  Used a MS border punch at bottom of card, all papers are from Kaiser Craft/Madame Boutique.  Rhinestones from Recollections, Doily and heart from stash.  Used some stickles on the sides of the card base.  Till next time, thanks for visiting with me, recycle when we can!
