Arty Girlz Challenge #35

The challenge from Arty Girlz this week is to find something to recycle and create something with it. Well I chose a Paint chart from the local DIY store and made a "New Home" card just adding a key charm, some alphabet letters and even the dots are punched out of the chart.The charts are great for using to punch out small flowers and shapes because the colours all match and there is a terrific range of colours...so get yourselves off to your DIY store this weekend and stock up.
