Going Green...recycling that is

This weeks High Hopes Challenge #48 is all about recycling. I have used Elmer the Elephant for this card. I think he looks great in any colour.
Elmer has been stamped and then embossed with Black Brilliance Ink and clear powder. I have chosen to colour him with Twinkling H2O's. It's a shame the shimmer of these paints doesn't show.
He was then cut out and mounted on a 'SU chocolate chip' oval cut out using the nestabilities.The designer papers this week are from Scenic Route Paper Inc.
My recycled embellishment is actually the ring pull from a soft drink can, as you can see I made it into a buckle to thread the ribbon through.
I am having so much fun using my High Hopes Stamps.They are fabulous to colour.

Until Next Time
Inking of you All

Just stopped by before dinner. That elephant is adorable and he looks so good in any colour. Great idea for the buckle too.
