Recycled Birthday Card

I loved this herb pot border on the stationary of a pen pal's letter, so wanted to re-use it for her birthday card.

I  added a green card stock block (actually it's an old green file folder!!), then a piece of torn mulberry paper to a top fold 5x7" ivory card.  The image was carefully torn from the letter, then glued over the seam.

I used a Verve stamp on a Spellbinders label to finish off the front, and a few touches of Stickles glitter glue.

She said she really liked it, so that made me happy.

Have a wonderful weekend - thanks for stopping by today!
