Recycled Elements

Day 54 at 365 Cards was to use at least one recycled element on our card. I hand cut the flower from the lid of a Staples copy paper box. That box had been out in my garage forever. I also just found a card challenge over at Paper Blooms that this card fit into today. I might just have to start checking out their challenges too!! I found a link to their site over on Rose's blog.

supplies:
American cardstock
EK edge punch (just bought this one!)
button from my cousin Rhonda (she just sent me a box full of them yesterday) thanks sweetie!
cardboard
yellow paint
embroidery thread
