Saying Hello

Happy Monday and happy new week! My new job makes my days go so fast. I do love that. Super busy! If I can't be home crafting, I do like my days to go fast! My card tonight is one that I really like!

The image is a digital image from Doodle Pantry. This is the pre-colored image from the set called Pelican Dreams Color plus. The sentiment is from the same set. The swirly background paper is actually a recycled Kleenex box. My DH thinks it's hilarious that I buy my tissues for the colors of the box. I backed the recycled paper with gray card stock and it's all layered on blue cards stock. I used Spellbinder's dies to cut the image and sentiment.
I am entering this card into these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week is off to an excellent start!

Ahhh....wonderful! My favorite ugly bird, but beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and I really think the pelican is a beautiful bird. I need to use my Spellbinders more...I rarely use them.

Donna I just LOVE the recycled kleenex box! Gorgeous colours and it makes the pelican pop. Very nice!

How creative to use your tissue box - talk about going green - you have done that and you surely made an "ugly" bird pretty - great job.
