Good morning all - half way through the week and also into May!

This week's challenge at Papercraft Star is polka dots and lace:

I just received a card from my boss, it was so pretty with sparkles and shimmery paper - I just knew I could recycle it to make a new card.

And here it is - I trimmed it up just a bit and basically that was that!

Card Ingredients:  recycled card, KaiserCraft Magnolia Grove paper, DCWV and Recollections cardstock, Celebrate It ribbon and lace,  Wild Orchard flower, Recollections pearls.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Simon Says Stamp and Show - travel, Joanna Sheen - recycle, Red Carpet Studio - thank you.

Don't forget to check out the rest of my teamie's beautiful creations:

Please have a warm and sun-shiny day!  Thanks for the visit!
