Pear - fect Sense


To me, it makes pear-fect sense to recycle and what could be a more beautiful recycle material than commercial (not handmade -- no never!) greeting cards. After the Holidays run those cards through your shredder to create a new life for all that color, gold and sparklies. I made the background with haphazard stamping (maker unknown) and ran it through a corrugator. You can see a previous post a couple of cards down for more information. I will add this to a challenge post for the rainbow lady -- and since I am aka, "theneon" (short for the neon rainbow) I couldn't resist her recycle challenge. Go visit the rainbow lady here.
