Mum In A Million

How many crafters out there have a collection of cards which have been 'donated' by friends and loved ones for you to recycle? Most of you I bet.
I have a box which was almost overflowing so decided tonight to have a rummage and remove what I thought were the useable bits whilst watching a documentary on TV.
Multi~tasking ... whatever next??!!
With the exception of the card blank, (which incidently is a pearlised pastel pink), some silver mirri board and adhesive gems from my stash for an added bitta' bling, this card was made using only 'recycled' bits cut out from some of those cards.

Kaboodle Doodle Challenge #8 is a sketch this time, so I used that as a guide for the layout.
The gorgeous pink ribbon has a Birthday Wishes sentiment tag attached with tiny pink string pearls.

Now ... the question is ... will I ever actually get to the bottom of my 'recycle box' ... ???
... very, very doubtful methinks!
