Another Sunday :O) Another challenge over at One Stitch At A Time :O)
This week we are challenging you to either reuse or recycle something. Rgeres some fantastic creations over at the challenge blog. So i hope that you have stopped by there.. You wont be disappointed, i promise you.

The sponsor for the challenge is Creative Craft World

To win our main prize you MUST  use a StitchyBear product.

other digi images can still be used but they will be entered into our runner up draw to win $3 to spend at StitchyBear digital stores.

For this challenge i worked with Oase from Panda bear designs where i chose this gorgteous paper set called ' Going in Circles'

With the theme being 'reuse or recycle'.
I chose to reuse.
I reused the card enverlope that i had left from buying a pack of little love  cards. I took it to pieces and recovered it with a grey circles paper.
Then i took a chocolate bar and replaced the paper wrapper with a piece of the plain pink from the set of papers.
On the chocolate bar i then used lots of gems to 'bling' it abit
I punched out 2 butterflies adding liquid pearls to the body and stickles to the edge of their wings.

Heres the finished reused project

Just in time for my mums birthday on March 6th :O)
