Wednesday Challenge at the Hoedown

Hello everyone!!!. Another Wednesday at the Hoedown. This week the challenge is to "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle". This is my story: In 1955 my mother was chosen "Labor Princess" back home in a town in Argentina. The news were in the papers and she saved those papers till now. I made a scrapbook with them but I had some twice, so with a piece of one of them I made this flower. Is that Recycling or what???. Here is my project:

For this card I used:

Cardstock: Whisper White and Chocolate Chip from SU
Stamps: Whishing Well and Whishing You Well from Hambo Stamps
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Fancy Flourish die, Pretty Posies die, Photo corners die and Oval Stax die all from MFT. I used Copic Markers to colour the image and the brad (no idea, sorry).

Thanks for looking!!!
