Pilin' On the Recycling

The theme this month at Pile It On is Recycle. The only real rule is to be inspired by more than one papercrafting challenge. Be sure to stop back on the 3rd Sunday of the month for a bonus theme! We're sponsored by MelonHeadz Illustrating, and I used their fun Earth Day image & sentiment. These are freebies from way back in 2012; for more fabulous Earth Day ideas, check out the MelonHeadz Index.

This card is made from cardboard boxes with my Accordion/Fancy Label die by Karen Burniston/Elizabeth Craft Designs.
The center block, with the lovely pastoral scene, is from a box of cereal that's been languishing in my pantry since, going by the "sell by" date, 2006! The Kind bar box I used for the rest of the card is much more recent; now we have loose Kind bars in the pantry!
Calling All Sistahs: Colour Palette (It reminded me of the packaging I used as the card base, and I built the colors from there)
Crafter's Cafe #178: More than one fold
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper: Anything Goes with Patterned Paper
Just Us Girls: Use Something Old and/or Something New (I've owned the die set & enamel stickers for several years; the papers are recent purchases)
Kreativeinkauf-challenge: Punches / Die Cuts
