Going Green!

Pin It

Limelight Celebrates Earth Day!
Earth Day will be right around the corner (and Arbor Day, too), so we're thinking GREEN!
For this month's project the Limelight Chicks are making projects using recycled packaging, trees, etc...

I recycled my
Prima Essentials 4 Dude packaging!
I washed out the packaging thoroughly and filled it with MnM's!

To embellish the container I tied 3/8" White Satin and 3/8" Reversible Lt Blue/Parrot Green Satin Ribbons at the top.
I added two primas from the Essential 4 Dude pack (these go great with the urban prairie papers!!) at the top left corner and added an Aquamarine Rhinestone to the center.

For the focal point, I stamped a tree from the Tiny Trinity set by Unity in Adirondak Espresso and paper pieced with Basic Grey Urban Prairie.
Then I stamped the row of rabbits from the Easter set by Pink Cat Studio in Taken with Teal.
I added a sentiment from Easter and cut out a butterfly from one of the papers in the Basic Grey Urban Prairie 6x6 pad.

For the gift card I again used paper from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie 6x6 pad to paper piece this cute bunny from Easter.
I added a yellow rhinestone (a great lemon-lime color) to the center of the flower and tied a Lt Blue/Parrot Green ribbon at the top.
