Going green- my point of view

This card made TOP 5 on Clearly inspired " going green" challenge- thanks!!
This week the web is full of these" green" challenges- but they all are for St.Patrick's day. Also I do believe in every " lucky" thing in the Universe (a post about it will be done some time )- we don't celebrate this day here in Israel.
But being this " green" kind of person in my crafting (I wish I would be more green all all this plastic and paper recycling and not only with crafting)-
I did this recycled cork coaster and used more recycles items here too:
the cardboard from packaging, twine, my own homemade recycled paper and recycled charm from old kids chain.
So here it is - digi print arrows paperpiecing, inking, distressing , stamping and clear powder heat embossing, and just for the final touch- a brad, some flowers and a bit of felt ribbon.
As for use- it can be just a reminder on the wall- but we can use it for notes too if we want..
And now for the challenges- lots of green one (also as I said my green is kind of unscripted green)

I think this is fabulous, I am sometimes plagued with guilt, as I am an avid recycler but I look at my mountain of DP and think, "What have I done?! So many trees!!" This is beautiful and a very nice reminder to boot, thanks for joining in on our Charmed Challenge at Creative Inspirations challenge this week!!
