AAA Cards #73-Upcylcing

Hi All

At AAA Cards we have a new challenge and are asking you to 'upcyle'.

Here is the card I made:


Here I have 'upcyled' this 'love' die. I made it over a year ago and did have it on a card but really was not so happy with the rest of the card. It has been in my box of cards since then. This challenge gave me the chance to actually use it again for a new card. It came just at the right time as it was my Brother's 25th Wedding Anniversary this year so I had a reason to recycle the die. Blogging friend Rahmat send me this gorgeous textured card so all I needed to do was stick the die to this card and add a few silver gems and a silver sentiment and done! Felt good to pop it in the post knowing I had finally made use of the die and this time loved the card I made!

Our sponsors for this challenge are Happy Little Stampers. The winner will get a $20 gift voucher to spend in their fabulous store.

Can't wait to see them!
