secret crafter saturday challenge "Recycling"

this weeks challenge was to use at least one recycled object on your card... well that wasn't a problem for me I'm a bit of a hoarder and have lots of "junk" to choose from.
I finally narrowed it down to the pretty box my slippers came in at Christmas (the grey card with the stars on it) which is lilac on the reverse, Some lilac ribbon ( which i am pretty sure was from the ribbon originals set fairytale) which was on a present i received as well and some great little buttons which i think probably came of one of my Gran's cardigans,

all put together with some lavender lace card stock and the starring you stamp set I also used the large star punch.

It was fun now i need to tidy up all the junk i got out finding these bits it's amazing how much you "might need".

How fun to use a shoe box as your starting point. I like all the stars and the purple colors.

I just love stars, and I like that you have used pastels with them! :)
