CBC CHALLENGE #20 Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - ALL ABOUT JOY

Did you get all of your cards out for the Monday Mail Call Challenge? I completed my goal!
Today is Created By Courtney's Sketch Challenge and Dani came up with the fabulous idea of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. If you choose to participate, Link up with Courtney and you will have an opportunity to win! When you are done here go check out the rest of the Design Teams fabulous projects!

I had about 3 or 4 ideas for this challenge, but we didn't want to eat THAT MUCH Mayonaise to empty the container, so I made my husband have a beer, so I could have the bottle cap. :) When I said, "Can You drink a beer? I need the bottle cap?" He just looked at me and shook his head. The things he does for me, eh? LOL

Everything I used on this card is Stampin' Up! (except for the Copics), but Joy bought some, so there is no excuse for her not to use them!
Details of the card:
Stamp Set: For Father, Serendipity, Circle of Friendship SU
Cardstock: Ski Slope DP, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Old Olive
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Chocolate Taffeta, Bottle Cap, 1/2 inch and 1 inch circle punch, Mini Glue Dots, Glue Dot, and Paper Piercing Tool
Don't forget to check out the FABULOUS Design Team projects! There are TWO new Chicks, Holly and Maria. Be sure to spread some LOVE!
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
