Recycling Bling

So........ this was an interesting one. I combined the Simply Less is More Challenge of  "bling" with the Crafty Cardmakers Challenge of "Recycling" and the Craft your days away "buttons and/or bow" challenge.

To make it I cut up a cheap diamante bracelet with heart charm that i got from Claire's Accessories many years ago. I used the main heart shaped charm as the focal point and attached a Navy coloured satin ribbon bow (made from the ribbon hangers that hold your clothes on the clothes hanger- i always cut them out of new clothes!). Then I matted the heart on off-cuts of navy and silver card. I added the message, also mounted on navy card and 3 of the diamante stone from the bracelet itself. Quite a chic card even if I do say so myself!
