A Recycled Happy Birthday!

Hello all my scrappy followers!  Today, is a double challenge card. Yep, I don't know how I did it but I did!  I started of by playing along with the A Blog Named Hero Recycling Challenge and when I was done.....I was like WHOA! I guess I Cas(e) the Sketch!  While this may not be very Clean and Simple... It was very easy and quick! 

I started of with some scraps on my desk...I found the embossed acetate packaging I had done a while back and never used in on a card.  I also had this medium sized brown paper bag on my desk that I kept trying to use and just couldn't make it happen.  I cut the bag down to be manageable on a card and picked a scrap of yellow paper out of my trash that I had sketched a heart on. I stamped over the heart and cut it out with a tag die.  Placed that sucker in the pocket and BAM! Instant Embellie! 

Since, there is no great way to attached the acetate to the card, I used my trusty stapler. 

Recycled Materials Used:
- Brown Paper Bag
- Acetate from packaging
- Scrap paper I Literally pulled from my trash can! 

I think I did pretty good on Recycling some stuff, that would have gone to the landfill.
