Bah! Humbug! #18

The challenge theme at Bah! Humbug! is 'Going Green' and this can be interpreted to mean either 'Recycling' or alternatively,  it's most literal sense, where the colour Green is used.  If you prefer you can even do both!  
Whatever you decide, we are really looking forward to seeing some super projects again this week ... talking of which, you should check out what the new Guest Designers and Humbugger Ann have been up to!     
Hang on ... HANG ON!  Before you disappear let me give you a quick rundown of how my card came to be.
The base card is an A4 sheet of foiled cardstock from Kanban - where else? - folded in half ... nothing complicated about that.   The cute puppies were salvaged from a card received last Christmas which I couldn't bear to throw out and the gorgeous, scrumptious, fabby-licious ribbon was 'reclaimed' from a Christmas parcel and was originally intended for last week's 'Pleats and Ruffles' challenge ... but ... ahem ... never quite got there.  Actually 'reclaimed' is a polite way of saying 'snatched back' ... *blush*.   I was so quick that the ribbon had hardly been unwrapped before it was back in my sticky little paws whilst the poor unsuspecting recipient was still faffing with the sellotape  lol!    
 Just couldn't help myself!
Anyway ... that's it!  Told you I'd be quick!  
A good example of a Bish ... Bash ... Bosh kinda' card.   If you'd like to see something more elaborate then I suggest you head over to Humbug Hall where there's been some super recycling happening and what's more there's a prize up for grabs again this week!   
Are we good to you or what?

What a great card Max - mind you I was a tad confused when I saw the pleats/ruffles!!!! Thought you'd got the wrong challenge there but at least it takes in two weeks' challenges eh? lol It seems it isn't only me that lurks whenever someone is opening a pressie.........

Hugs.

Great use of that piece of reclaimed ribbon and the puppies are really cute so I can see why you just had to keep them.
