A touch of recycling ...

... when Ocado delivered my groceries yesterday there was a little booklet in with them - tbh didn't take much notice of it except the picture on the front which I chopped down to use on this card - just thought it was crying out to be recycled! The main picture was mounted on to an offcut of red mirror card and then mounted on to a 7 x 5 cardblank - job done! An early card for A card a day (facebook). It's also another one for my own CHNC challenge 95: black, white and one other colour if you wish (well, yes, I've cheated again because there really are two additional colours).

This is also for:
