C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 53 : Newsprint

Good Morning, and what a wonder a wonderful sunny day it is here today. The birds are singing and the butterfly's are all over the flowers. It makes me want to sing. Well my card is!!! This is my DT card for the C.R.A.F.T. challenge this week which has a theme of NEWSPRINT. Use some form of newsprint on your creation this week.

I've torn out the weather forecast for Scotland - aged it with a used teabag and used this in conjunction with my House Mouse stamp.
I've used part of the newspaper to create my flowers. I hope you will come over and join us this week and to take a look at the other wonderful creations from my DT friends.
