Reuse and recycle

Simon Says Challenge gave following guidelines this time:
"So, your new challenge is to RECYCLE!!!! Use something/anything that had a use before."

I decided to take it even further and make (almost) totally recycled card.
The cards base is from old card I didn't like - I was able to take everything off and reuse it.
Lace is from a pile my Mom took off old pillowcases
Ribbon is from our wedding present (erm ... we got married about 6 years ago, serious hoarding issue here)
Charm is an old bag charm
Black polkadot card is from a back of Prima crystals
Silver mirror card is from old box, I don't even remember what was in it originally
Pink bow is made from paper twist shopping bag handle

I have to admit the image is not recycled! :D Its from Third Coast Stamps, coloured with my Prismas and sponged with metallic rubons.

Thanks for looking!

WOW! I love this ! The image is wonderful and how creative are you to use all of these things that you've been saving! I have a little hoarding issue with things like that too! Thank heavens these aren't large items! This card is a real SHOW STOPPER!
