Think Green Friday

Happy Friday! Today's card literally took me minutes to put together. I don't do this often enough! I wanted to play along with the sketch challenge today and had little time to spare soooo.....patterned paper, stamp set and kraft card stock were scattered on my desk so that is what I used!
The stamp set is a brand new release as of yesterday called "Who's that girl goes green" by My Favorite Things. I stamped her on kraft card stock and paper pieced her shopping bags with the Cosmo Cricket patterned paper. I colored her shirt and pants with my copics and stamped the recycle symbol from the stamp set on her shopping bags.
I had some heavy thread in my sewing machine for finishing touches and stamped the sentiment on my twill tape.
The little brads were the only time consuming part....I had cheapo brads that I never used kicking around that I pulled the top pebble off of. I punched my patterned paper with a small circle punch, stamped the symbol and then used glossy accents to put the brads back together again. Voila....custom brads!
There in lies the "recycle" part of my card....lol!

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the sketch crew came up with:
Jami Sibley: More is More
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Melissa Sauls: In Stamping Mode
Alice Lihsuan-Wertz: Alice's Little Wonderland
Lisa Hjulberg: The Craft's Meow
Lori Craig: Making a Difference

I know it is a pretty quick post today....I am prepping for my trip out to Toronto next week....lots of fun card kits to make!

Have a great weekend!
