H{ippity} Hop-Recycled Denim...

Hello!  Happy H{ippity} Hop Monday!  Today I have a couple more cards that I made for the WCMD challenges hosted by Unity.  I decided to show both of the cards I made with some denim embellishments.  I love that handmade embellies on cards is so popular right now.  I have plenty of old jeans from my boys, that I can recycle in so many creative ways.
I cut out the seam and used that on my first card along with the bird stamp from  the ippity set, Totally Happy, Distressed Dots and a sentiment from the July KOTM.
For the second card, I used some denim to make a rolled flower.  I added a button to the center.  I used the scallop border stamp from Melody Ross, One of A Kind set and the quote from the ippity set, Delightful Little Things.

Thanks for stopping by!
