Flea Market Flip - #4

I've committed to doing a quarterly series (personal challenge) this year. For this quarter (April - June) the series is what I'm calling Flea Market Flip. The idea is to find an item at a yard sale, thrift store, even out of the trash and use it on a card.... but the item needs to be something that was not created for the purpose of cardmaking or paper-crafting.

Today's item is a 
packet of Bottle Wraps:

Cost: 74 cents
Found at a Thrift Store

As you can see in this picture,
I used one of the Bottle Wraps
like it was designer paper:

Here's the inside of my card:

What a great way to use the bottle wrap Jeanette - and a very cheap purchase of design paper!! A fabulous card.

I always love your Flea Market Flip cards. That is one of my favorite TV shows to watch. Sometimes I'll binge watch it for 3 hours!! Fun card!
