created by courtney challenge

Good morning friends! I hope that your Monday went well and that you are ready for a Created by Courtney Challenge! After a couple of weeks off for the holiday's we are back at it with a "green" theme. The idea is to recycle something into your crafting. Oh, and it also works for the Belli Challenge tomorrow...can you guess what that might be?

Can ya guess what I recycled into my crafting? Yep, a couple of taster spoons from my Tastefully Simple business. I have to be honest with you and tell you I like the idea behind this card but I'm not sure my white, plastic taster spoons necessarily go with the fancy martini glasses but maybe I'm just thinking of how things are after those three glasses of martinis! LOL!

Anyway, the bright blue paper is SU! Pacific Point, the patterned paper is from DCWV, the yellow is Lemon Tart from PTI, and of course I've used the PTI white as well. The ribbon that ties the spoons together is Summer Sunrise from PTI and finally the stamp set is called You Are Invited and is from Flourishes.

So...what can you create with something recycled? The CBCC Chicks have done a wonderful job this week so make sure you hop on over and check out all of their creations too! Excitingly we have two new challenge chicks so make sure to give them some extra love!
