DT Card for # 45: Recycle something not normally used on a card

Hi everyone, over at Crafting with Dragonflies is another new Challenge starting, this time it's CG's turn and she chose: Recycle something not normally used on a card.

So I didn't really have anything, and I was late putting on my card, because I had one of the moments where I just could not find anything....until I walked into my garden and checked out my plants, very pleased to say my Vanilla Orchid is actually flowering, small mauve ones, so cute. And there was my husband sweeping up all the leaves from all over the place and this little gorgeous gum leaf stuck out. So I used it, insect holes and all, on the card..hope you like it.
I also used an assortment of leaf die cuts to give him some company, lol. Papers and everything else from my stash.

Blessings Hilde
