Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Recycled

We have a new Oldie but a Goodie Challenge starting today...and this fortnight the theme is:

'Recycle'

The prize for this challenge is some gorgeous flowers:

I recycled some gift tags that I'd made to go on Christmas presents:


And turn them into toppers for some simple Christmas cards:


I used strips of washi tape (from Hobbycraft), as a background for a snowflake cut from glittery felt using my old faithful Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' die...adding a pearl in their centres. Once I'd cut the tags apart, and mounted them on to my mini card blanks, I doodled a simple border, and added a Lili of the Valley sentiment.
I'm also entering these cards into the following challenge:


For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge.
