Recycle vs Texture

Well sad news. Over at IACCCB we have to change our blog name as Crafters Companion just started their own challenge blog, so Rachel decided to do a new challenge blog with a different name. So our last challenge was set by me and I've asked for recycle newspaper and magazine, 3 buttons and glitter.
Mine is a bit late as I'm still not 100% but getting there. I made this on Monday but been so busy yesterday had no time to post and forgot to take pic daytime so had to wait till morning to do it.
I did craft today a bit. I was just putting finishing touches on few cards. Still got catching up to do. Managed to do the house the last few days so now it's only my cards I'm behind with.
Anyway back to my card
Over at TT the challenge was set by Zoe and this is what she asked for:all about texture. Go and check out the DT's awesome work.
Crafters Companion background stamp from everyday collection
Crafters Companion Jemima&sentiment stamp
Laminated card from my material samples
White acrylic paint
Buttons from stash
Glitter leftovers
Tim Holtz distressed inks
Water colouring pencil

I have started my card with a sheet of newspaper. I painted with white acrylic paint and once it was dry I stamped the little background stamps with distress inks then after drying I torn it to fit my A4 card. Have saved the left over for later. I stuck my paper to my base card then I added my material to my laminated picture and fixed it to the card.
I stamped Jemima onto my chosen magazine page and cut out her hat and scarf. Stamped Jemima on white card stock and coloured her where I had to and glued the bits to place. I placed Jemima onto the straw settie.
With my left over material I stamped my sentiment and put it on the bottom,

With the other piece of leftover material I made a flower and put to buttons on top of each other as center. I made the middle flower with the leftover strip of newspaper&bit of material and torn magazine for center and a bit of glitter. The last flower was made with torn magazine in circle&leftover newspaper, bit of material what I distressed

And here it is the card. I was quit pleased with the over all result. Recycling is great.

I 'm gonna add this card to:
