PaperBlooms Challenge #4 & 365 Cards Day 54

I don't normally make one challenge into two but as I just started working the graveyard shift last night and am to tired to make something today... I am going to use this for today's challenge on 365 Cards "Recycled Elemets".
A BIG thank you to AUsomeMom for suggesting this :-)
This weeks challenge on Paper Blooms is "Celebrate Earth Day"
We are to use something that you'd normally throw away or want to make new again in your project.



I had the little card with the "Counted Blessings" for years and never got around to making the money holder that goes with it, so now was the perfect reason to do so.
I used a small glass jar that was on it's way to the trash. Computer generated the words, added ribbon and of course Leah's beautiful Blooms.
*Please be sure to check out Leah's new weekly challenge HERE*.

What a great idea Rose! Last Sunday our pastor had a message about focusing on your blessings. This would be a great way to do it. I may have to make one of these too!

What a beautiful and elegant project. I am a big believer of counting one's blessings. I may have to make this and make it a family affair. Great job with this challenge.
