Guest Designer at CTB (RECYCLE CARD) & Cards + Goodies from Crafter all around the world PART I

Another saturday also another challenge at Catch The Bug we have this week Earth Day - Recycle can join us and you will have a chance to win some lovely and cute Images from Bugaboo Store.

I used this time AKV Earth Day - Trash Can for my card, I was having no idea with the Recycle things I want to put on my card. I asked Pia and also Billie the NOT NEWBIE DT Member :) (many thanks Pia and Billie for the idea). Also I asked my friend she has a sewing service at her home and has many buttons there I got some from her and I used also from my son school project that gold metal wire

How I made my card:

1. Printed the Digi Image from Bugaboo.
2. Colored with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor (I love the color here really vibrant right :) )
3. Colored with the water color the earth and draw some stone there with black pen.
4. Using my Cloud template (thanks Billie for this lovely and transparent cloud template), sponged the blue distress ink for my cloud background. 
5. Stamped the stripes Stamp on my background paper with blue ink
6. Glued the button on the left side of my card, and make a circle using that gold metal wire and put at the top right of my card.
7. Stamped the sentiment and adhere it at the blue stampin up punched paper in blue. 

My suggestion, dont worry to colored your background of the Digi will make your card more LIFE not only a pieces of white paper and image :)

Challenges for my card are:

Creative Fingers Challenge #75: Anything Goes(sdh a. p.)

Sister Act Challenge #101: Anything Goes(sdh a. p.)

Stempel Sonne Challenge (Until 16 April): Anything Goes (sdh a. p.)

Wags n´ Whisker #151: Buttons(sdh a. p.)

Open Minded Challenge #34: Recycle Something (I used the old buttons and the wire is from my son project in the school (the rest))

Loves Rubber Stamp #146: Anything Goes  (sdh a. p.)
Penny´s Challenge #222: Anything Goes(sdh a. p.)

Papertake Weekly Challenge: Anything Goes (sdh a. p.)

  16. Your recycling card scene is so cute, congrats on your GD spot! And gorgeous birthday cards and goodies from your SIL!

  17. Happy Happy Belated Birthday, Monika! Hope you had a wonderful day and showered with lots of presents from all over the world!

    Great card with the recycled products and great colouring!

  18. How nice to receive so many cards and small gifts! Nice thank you post.
    I think your recycled card turned out really cute. I've got plenty of buttons, I always cut them off clothes before I throw them (I only throw them if they're too worn to be given away for charity though). My late grandmother did the same and my aunt had kept them, so I received two huge bags of buttons of all sorts that she had kept some years ago.

  19. Wonderful card.
    Thanks for joining us at the Stempelsonnen challenge.

  20. Brilliant card Monika & a beleated Happy Birthday!

  21. This is such a cute card - I love how you made a background around the cute image with your watercolours! Great recycled items - this challenge always puzzles me too but you did great! I like your striped background too! I enjoyed seeing your birthday cards and gifts from all your friends - I see mine there - Yay! I'm in Canada, not USA, but that's okay! Glad you like it! Now you have lots of washi tape - looking forward to seeing it! I love washi tape and it's fun to challenge myself to use it as much as I can!

  22. Oh, Blessed Birthday to you! Love your cards and the items you used for recycle! Thanks for sharing in Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenge, good luck!
