This card was crafted for the CPC blog hop, for the Our Daily Bread Designs Stampin' In Time: On Assignment Challenge #39 to use something recycled on your project, and the Verve July Challenge Sentimental About Paper to use some of your stashed, er saved, designer paper and sentiment only stamps. No stamped images.

The recycled items include a label from the back of my favorite laundry powder from La Bouquetiere, Inc. (My personal favorite is the violette laundry powder. . .so vintage, so lovely. It's reserved for special things and thankfully, a little goes a long way!) Also recycled are the corrugated bit, the button, and the string. The corrugated bit is from a box my dog shredded. She's quite handy that way!
