Recycled challenge

This week the fabulous Sherry, challenged us to use something recycled in our card/project, such as yarn, foil, or packaging.  So I ripped up a brown paper bag, stamped on it, cut it to size, punched the edge, crumpled it up and then distressed the edges.  I layered it on some Basic Grey Porcelain dp, bazzil textured paper & kraft.  I had just enough brown/cream gingham ribbon left to tie a cute bow & found a red button to put in the corner.  The flowers on the image were colored in using Copic markers, but any brand of markers would achieve the same look.  If you decided to play along, be sure to use USC28 in your keywords over on SCS.  The image is from The Unity Stamp Co.
"life"

materials used:
kraft, Bazzil red, Basic Grey Porcelain paper
Brown paper bag
Unity Stamps
SU scalloped edge punch, spiral punch
button, twine, Copic markers
