Design Team Card for Unstampabelles Challenge #16 - Recycling

My hubby and I visited the night markets in Cairns on Wednesday night and I saw a backpack that had Campbell soup labels all over it.  This gave me an idea for a card.  The card really didn't turn out like what I had in my head but I did have.  Above all the labels and the now silver cans that adorn our shelves.  I did get my permanent marker out and wrote on them what is inside.

I ended up using only the beetroot can label to create these flowers which I have added to stampin up designer papers.  Finished with a wonderful sticker from the Sticker Store.

Put in your own entry here so we can check out your recycling creation.
