Catch the Bug Challenges - Earth (Recycle) and My Time to Craft #287 - Sketch

Hello! Happy weekend to each of you! Hope you are well!
Do you have any special plans?  We are getting together with family
on Sunday to celebrate my belated birthday party (it's the BIG 5-0 for me!).
Other than that, it's supposed to be cold and rainy here so I'm hoping
to be inside cozy and warm & doing some major crafting :o)

My card today is for two challenges that I am on the design teams of:  
Catch the Bug Challenges (Bugaboo) - Earth/Recycle
where we would like to see you use a recycled item(s) on your
card or project (or with the Earth as the focus) in honor of Earth Day; 
and My Time to Craft - where I'm the hostess this week 
for MTTC #287 - Sketch Challenge. 

Before I show you the card - here's the awesome sketch 

 and here is my card using a digital image by Bugaboo called "World Girl"

I went mostly with the Earth theme here but did rescue (recycle) a small
banner strip that had been sitting on my desk as a left over from another
project and snipped it in half for the two tabs in the sketch.

The background paper is from an older Basic Grey collection
that has been in my stash for literally 6 years and finally got used today.
I love the fun and funky vibe from it with this image.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Sister Act Card Challenges #101 - Anything Goes
If you Give a Crafter a Cookie Challenge #116

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges #222 - Anything Goes

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend and  next week.
Try to find some time to get crafty while you can and then come play
along with us at both My Time to Craft  (sketch)
and Catch the Bug Challenges (Earth/Recycle).
Til next time....hugs and happy crafting! D
