There is a new challenge which started today - Scrap the Art. The picture they gave as inspiration was a Van Gogh.

First of all I made this card - which the painting inspired me to make.

Here is a close up showing the new butterfly punch I have used.

With the leftovers I made this card using the clean & simple sketch.

This is a box that some perfume from Next arrived in. I didn't want to throw it away but it had Next printed in the middle of the box on a white oblong.

I put a yellow oblong cut with a nestie over the "Next" writing then cut another oblong with white card and punched it with the butterfly - the used an SU sentiment stamp. I've put yellow tissue paper in the box too so I think it looks really lovely for my friend's birthday. She never comes on here so safe to post!;)

Hi Linby
I'm glad there is someone out there like me I hate to throw boxes out. your card is lovely very vibrant, I was tempted by that butterfly, then when I went back they had no more left about my luck, Love the box I'm not surprised you reused it I would have 2.

Great recycling too, I have loads of pretty bags and boxes I have to keep to re-use too
