Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - My Favorite Things' June VIP Blog Hop

OK, it's that time of the month! Time for My Favorite Things' VIP Blog Hop! If you got here by chance, you might want to head over to Kim's blog 'cause that's where it all starts. If you got here from the awesomely talented Sherrie's blog, you're right on track.

The WTG Goes Green VIP Package is $36.40 and includes:
Who's That Girl Goes Green $17.95
What a Day (FREE, $9 value)Twill Ribbon Collection $5.95
Die-namics Edge Die (Be one of the FIRST to get a NEW Die-namics die, which will be officially released on June 2nd) $12.50

Awesome package, right???

Costumes from Wonderland is an additional release for May 18th @ 10 PM EST and is $15.95.

So, here's my card. I love this set because I try to live sorta green--light green, maybe, LOL? I am using recycled paper with DCWV Green Mat Stack and I used a brown paper grocery bag to paper piece WTG's bags and for the sentiment. Every little bit helps, right? I stamped the image (and there's ANOTHER WTG image in this set, along with several wonderful sentiments, that will knock your socks off!) on a Perfect Paper Panel and mostly paper pieced it with a little Copic coloring. I think the mechanics are pretty obvious, except I did use the Jumbo Scallop and Scalloped Scallop Die-namics dies for the horizontal element--it's hard to see in this picture, but they're there. Other MFT products I used are Wild Cherry and Sour Apple card stock, and a Summer Collection button on my twill bow.

The inside. LOVE this sentiment!!!
