Cut It Up #9

Hi Everyone!
Happy Friday!

Today marks the beginning of another great challenge over at

Challenge #9
"Out With The Old"
Create a paper project that reuses something from around your house that you typically would not use in your papercrafting (i.e. a pendant from a old necklace, acetate backing from a sticker sheet, fabric from some old clothing, etc.)
Project must also include a die-cut!

Challenge will run from Dec. 28, 2012 to Jan. 9, 2013 (noon EST)

For my project I decided to make a pretty little card:

For my die cuts, I used my Lacy Labels Cricut Cartridge and cut out my scallop oval and leaf vine for my sentiment at 3".

Can you guess my repurposed item???

My flowers are actually some old earrings that my daughter no longer wanted. 
I simply cleaned them up, snipped off the post and attached them to my leaf vine with some tacky glue. 
I think they made a wonderful embellishment and they went along with my papers so well.
It was like it was meant to be :)

I hope you will head over to Cut It Up! to see what my amazing DT sisters came up with for the challenge as well as entering the challenge yourself!
We would love to see what you create!

Stacey, this card is just so lovely. The color combination is a real winner, and I love how you repeated the tiny flowers of your patterned paper with the flower earrings!

This is such a pretty card, Stacey! What a good idea it was to use the earings! All the papers look great together and I love the sentiment! :)
