Playing With Paper Again--And "Recycling"

I love paper.  I have literally thousands of sheets.  But when there is a sale--I am there!!! It is an addiction.  Recently I started to use a bit of digital paper, not just on my digital scrapbook pages, but on my cards too!  I have actually found a way to "recycyle" some of my paper, using digital papers.  I usually purchase my paper in packs or pads,  This is great, because it is usually a bit more economical, and also the papers coordinate, so it is easy to put patterns together.  However, there are usually at least a few of the papers that are not really my taste, so they get put aside and eventually used as scrap or given away.  Now, with my foray into digital, I have a new use!  I flip them over and print on the white side.  The weight is just right and the new papers come out just great.  Here is a card I just made using some digital papers from Mary Fran at Nitwit.
The image is a new stamp from Penny Black.  I used Karen Foster Scrappers Floss to thread through the buttons.
