Daisy and Dandelion challange

This weeks challange over at http://daisyanddandelionchallengeblog.blogspot.com/ is to follow their sketch with the option of using something recycled....well having a dad who is a painter and decorator has its advantages .....the caramel backing is left over wallpaper...I know not recycled as such but it was just gonna go in the bin...lol
For this card I have used the Daisy stamp, caramel coloured wallpaper (thanks dad) a piece of striped card from my stash the diamond is embossed using a GG board sorry can't remember which one think its the romance lol the sentimanet is D & D Glitterpot exclusive and the flower is a Freds Flower http://fred-she-said.blogspot.com/ digi download. Oh and my Whispers pen to add faux stitching.
thanks for looking

great use for wallpaper! (I've scanned bits of wall paper before now to use as they look bumpy and ditted but aren't!)

How very clever and the colous are so subtle. Great card. Confess I did 'borrow' a few samples from Homebase a few weeks back to try out on glimmer mists but didn;t think beyond that, so well done.

Hi Shell

Thank you so much for my award. I posted it onto my blog last night and have directed people you way so they can see your lovely creations. I hope this is ok.

Love this card - great idea to use wallpaper. All the DIY shops are going to have a busy time with all the new customers "viewing and taking samples" LOL!!

I hope you are well.

Love Jules xx
