A card for a nature lover

Good afternoon ..... quick post! as Madalyn is napping.  Took my Grandma out to lunch today and so we got home late.  Thought I would try and put Madalyn down for a nap ... not really expecting any luck .... but yippeeeee!!!

So here is my very quick and highly 'environmentally friendly card'.

I used a scrap piece of  cardboard that was inside some packaging I received in the post and the ribbon is from some clothes!  You know how they do those loops of ribbons on the inside of the clothes so they hang on the hanger??  and you always have to cut them off because otherwise that find their way out the top of your clothes he he he.  Well this was off some PJ's ... and how nice is it!  Much to good to throw away.

So all in all a good bit of recycling happening.

 A bit ofembossed card down the side .....

Very basic card .. would suit a male or a nature lover I think.  Those little tiger cubs are just so adorable.  You can find them at Meljen's.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-
Meljen's #84 - Orange and/or Brown
Forever Friends - Something Old, Something New
Lili Of The Valley - #120 Creature Comforts
Crafty Purple Frog -  #28 Orange

Thanks for stopping by .... will be back tonight :)
