Stampin’ Royalty is doing an anything goes challenge.   Ok – anything?  Are you sure? That’s how my Computer Keyboard Parts Card idea got started.

I work as an IT Tech during the day for the County of Mendocino in Northern California.  Recently we have been upgrading our computers around the county.  HUNDREDS of them!!  This has made for a very large pile of computer equipment that we have ready for the recycling
yard.  I look at all that stuff for recycling and think – wow – I must be able to do something creative with some of this stuff.

This is what I came up with:
