Hoedown challenge: Reduce, Reuse, Recyle!

Here is the cute new Goat digi from Hambo Stamps, free to all who danced in the Hoedown challenge last week. What I like about the Hoedown is the different creative challenge each week! This week we're challenged to recycle something we have into a card: Still scanning my cards as I wait for my camera:
When I think Recycle I head for my kitchen and my recycling basket. I found a brown paper Outback bag, which I tore up, distressed, and inked. I like the mushrooms & veggies printed on it as well as the red Recycle symbol. The little scrap of lined paper is from one of those grocery list pads I get from various organizations. I decided to try placing part of the (Hambo) sentiment peeking out from a turned-down, stapled corner of grocery bag. Heart stamp from my stash. That's a Tim Holtz circle reinforcer and I used the Marvy Uchida button punch. The little goat is colored with Copics and Glossy Accents. This was a fun challenge; thanks, Hambo! And thanks, friends, for stopping by.
