Recycle swap card

Another blurry pic--what is wrong with me? I'm always in a hurry I guess. This is for Jen's swap, the recycle category. The idea is to use up scraps. I did that! Card base is Gina K Heavy Base Weight Kraft. I used scraps of Old Olive and Not Quite Navy for the elements and More Mustard and Real Red the words. I used the Cricut cartridge Give a Hoot. It has all kinds of wonderful earth-friendly images and sentiments. I finished it off with some retired red SU hemp twine. Have I mentioned that I absolutely LOVE my Cricut? In fact I just joined another swap hosted by StampinGoodDeeds, who I met through Jen's swap, where you're supposed to cut elements for a scene. I've already been playing around with some ideas for that. It's an addiction I tell you! Thanks for stopping by today--hope YOU get some paper crafting time in today.

The earth shape in a heart is really cute! And I love it when people get their money's worth from their cricuts!

Amy, this is just perfect. I loved your idea in itself and the color combination is just right as well.
