Birthdays ROCK!

Happy Thursday, everyone! Joanne is the hostess for this week's My Favorite Challenge, and you just might need to be diggin' into your trash for this one! Just kidding! But, the challenge is to "Get Green" -- re-use or re-purpose some items from your home! Think of all those empty containers, ribbons you saved from Christmas packages... you get the idea. :)

I had a total *aha!* moment with this one. I was ready to use one of the many containers I have saved in a box for just such a purpose, when I spied a pack of CDs on the counter. I was lucky enough to find the acrylic divider still in the pack, and I was in business! I used The Poppies for this rock-themed card. I stamped the notes in black Stazon, and I sponged white Stazon around the edges. I applied Riding Hood Red ink directly from the pad to the edges of the sentiment.

That's it for today! I'll have another All That Scraps Preview for you tomorrow! Thank you for taking the time to visit -- I really do appreciate it!

Have a great day! :)
Christina

Wow! This is fabulous! Into my favs it goes! I love how you used the circular elements of the main image and the acrylic CD divider to enhance the Music/CD theme. Love the DP and the music notes on the acrylic piece. Just a fabulous card!
