How do the Jingle Belles Celebrate Earth Day?

The Jingle Belles have an Earth Day challenge every year and want you to recycle something and put it on your project.  I had a plan but the weekend was so busy I didn't get it implemented but I had most of the things organized and got to work this morning. I started out with a Christmas card I received it is gorgeous, at first I thought I would just use part of the card but I couldn't bear to discard the beauty of it. I also found a one inch wide ribbon that was around a chocolate box from Christmas. It was a tad wrinkled when I untied the bow so I took a curling iron and smoothed it out. Here is my recycled card.

This card is so sparkly but doesn't show in the picture, The poinsettia was cut with a small Tim Holtz die and put together with a flower brad.

I cut the image with Labels 4 large die and the Early Expresso layer cut with Labels 4 small die.

Finished inside.

I would like to enter this in:

The Jingle Belles Christmas challenge Peace on Earth Day
