Recycle For Christmas

It's time for another challenge at Catch The Bug! We want to see your recycled items on your projects! Wow, another recycle challenge! How cool is that?! As always, there are awesome digi prize packs up for grabs, from Bugaboo Stamps! Come play along with us, for your chance to win!

For my card, I've decided to get an early start on Christmas! My card uses the image, AKV Winter Fairy - Skates, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. All papers are from my stash. My recycled item is a white ribbon recycled from an old organza gift bag. How's that for repurposing?! I also added a handmade bow, made from blue and white polka dotted ribbon.  In the top corner is a handmade flower, made of patterned paper and secured in the center with a blue metal brad.  My sentiment is punched with circle and scalloped circle punches.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
