Polkadoodle Challenge 29 - Go Green & Recycle!

It's Friday so that means the posts come thick and fast today!!  And it also means its time for a Polkadoodle challenge! The theme this week is:

Go Green and Recycle

I've gone for an old favourite - the cupcake template from Paper Boutique Vol 3 and the green colourway.  I've cut out all the elements and layered them up with foam pads, added some glitter glue around the edges of the cake and added a line of silver dots around the inside of the star.

My recycling is the ribbon from a long gone box of chocolates and the brown card is from a sample Wedding invitation.

Good luck with the challenge - for more details, pop over to Polkadoodles!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Freshly Brewed:  Food and Drink
Little Red Wagon: Pretty Packaging (ribbon from box of chocolates)
Papertake Weekly:  All Things Girlie
Twisted Tuesday:  Glittery Chocolate Lovers (and ribbon was from a box of chocolates originally!)
Unstampabelles:  Celebration
  • All paperbased elements:  Polkadoodles Paper Boutique Vol 3
  • Everything else:  My stash
