Pile It On! Challenge - Recycle/Upcycle Something

This week at the Pile It On! Challenge, we're challenging you to:

'Recycle/Upcycle Something'

We are sponsored for this challenge by Bugaboo Stamps:
Prize - 7 Bugaboo Stamps Digi Images!

My recycled item is a cereal box:
I used the reverse side of the packaging for 'kraft' card.

I stamped and heat embossed in white some Hero Arts background stamps (Magical, Snowflakes & Chevrons) on my 'kraft' card. The image is a Sugar Nellie stamp called 'Festive Friends'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils...the sentiment stamp is from a Lili of the Valley set, and the gems are from Paperchase.

Here are the challenges I piled on:

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
