Recycled Kinkade

I have a drawer full of recyclables, and seldom use them!  Several years ago I had a daily calendar with Thomas Kinkade art - and could not bring myself to discard it at the end of the year.    This is one of the images.  The butterfly is cut from a view of the ocean that was once the front of a cereal box.  And one more - the gold bg for the Kinkade image is the liner from a can of International coffee - I am addicted to there is an endless supply!  (The shiny gold does not do well on the scanner, and the white tip of the butterfly is more subtle IRL.)  I placed sheer (cream color) ribbon over the sentiment to tone it down a bit.  The teal bg is embossed with LifeStyle craft Vine folder.
Sentiment other than birthday:
Any/thinking of you:
