Let There Be Peace on EARTH (Day)

If you've played along with us at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ over the last few years, you already know there are two prompts that never change: at the beginning of October we honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month with "Pink Christmas"; and in April we celebrate Earth Day by making holiday cards that feature re-cycled, re-used or up-cycled elements. 

Here's how we up-cycled for our Earth Day cards.

Stephanie says, "My card combines four different pieces of recycled packaging that I saved in my recycle box just for this month's cards.  I added stitch stickers from Pretty Little Studio to tie them altogether.  I finished with vintage holiday die cuts & sentiment stickers from Pretty Little Studio and a row of red bling."

Lauren says, "My friend Betty saw this adorable yeti on a tissue box and was kind enough to think of me and save the box! I covered up the logo using sections of curvy, snowy foreground cut from the side panels of the box. Then, since there are few things sadder than a lonely yeti, I stamped and colored a Lawn Fawn friend for the big guy, as well as an appropriate sentiment. I added a skinny mat of glittery aqua cardstock and then a bigger one of an ancient Studio Calico geometric snowflake patterned paper that serendipitously matches incredibly well (gotta love it when that happens, right?!) and finally, what arctic landscape is complete without some Eyelet Outlet Snowflake Sequins?"

Link your eco-friendly cards right here by 6pm (Eastern) on Wednesday, April 20th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB-22-08.
