TRASH TO TREASURE

The challenge over at The Outlawz today is (in their own words) ...

"We want you to Craft Your Stash: Use items from your stash/headed for the trash pile to create a project.  Don't forget to put a sentiment on the front.  And most importantly we want you to have fun!!!"

So here is my fun project for today:

 The two images featured on my card are Mr Snowman,(one of my own images drawn for the store) and Scary Background, also one of my own images that won the Digital Drawing Challenge over on CDAC last week.  I wanted to show that the background is very versatile, and not scary at all, depending which image you use it with. Here is a better look:

To make up my card I didn't use bits and bobs that were in my scrap bin, I did some 'dumpster diving' and retrieved some bits that were destined for the recycling bin in the garden.  The only 'new' stuff :
sentiment
gems
the off-white cardstock on which the images were printed

I love the final product, especially as it is made up of trash ... true trash to treasure!
