Wrong but Right with Pile it On

This week at the Pile It On Challenge our theme is Wrong but Right (use something in a way that wasn't originally intended). In my case, I used a lot of recycled items: The tire is cut from a foam coffee cup sleeve; the land and the boy's hair were made from a textured cardboard coffee cup sleeve; and the water was made with two medical face masks. Our challenge is sponsored by Pickled Potpourri Designs, so I used one of the sweet images from their Summer Boys set as well as two of the sentiments from their Affirmation Badges set.

The leafy branches and "beach balls" were cut with metal dies. I made the outer frame in SCAL using a grass pattern from a SVGcuts set, and cut it on my Silhouette Cameo.
