Magazine Monday #118

     It's kind of like getting free paper!!! Some really lovely designs are inside the security envelopes that our bills and other mailings come in.
     I save them all. Just look at what you can create! They also make beautiful flowers. I used six different envelopes for this card that I'm submitting to the Magazine Monday #118 challenge at PaperCrafter's Corner. Check out the inspiration cover and link to the rules below.
     I was inspired by the orange / coral colors against a dark background in this week's cover and the way things are mixed all around each other like a vine growing through it all.
     I used dies from Our Daily Bread Designs (Fancy Foliage) and circle dies from Spellbinders. The sentiment stamp comes from Unity Stamps (. . . bright, happy you). I heat embossed the sentiment tag with black pigment and clear embossing powder.

    Thanks again for stopping in. Hope you enjoy your day.
     May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands, Pamela


* * * New Way to Look at Bills * * *


  One of the challenges I answered a few days back during the Fiskateer National Scrapbooking Day Crop was called Upcycle It! We had to upcycle something we would normally throw away. Well, I had been noticing that some of the security envelopes that my bills come in have different patterns inside and some are very interesting so I started saving some of them. I made this card using five different patterns.

    I'll never look at my bills the same way again. Now I can't wait to get them opened! lol  My stepdad, Wendell, will be getting this card for Father's Day. I know he will love it because he hates throwing away paper as much as I do. For those of you who know Wendell, shhhh!
