Give thanks..

This week at the Pile it On challenge
our theme is recycle/upcycle. I recycled several things on my
card this week. First I used some cardboard and cut it into a bow and
added some ink and part of the cardboard to layer the image.
The background paper I made myself with bister powders.
Our fabulous sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps!!
