Partly recycled card

Hello bloggers,

Hope you are having a relaxed and happy weekend... I am getting to craft and blog so am a truly content being!!!

Here is a partly recycled I made with a paper mat with a cane print.

Base card stock - white
Brown faux cane mat effect paper - recycled table mat from a restaurant (I pinched it in the name of Aleeza!)
Designer paper - kind courtesy Terry
Leafy border - MS punch (love my new acquisition to bits)
Black and brown border at the bottom - new gift wrap (I hoard gift wrap and then I complain I don't have enough space in my card room)
Sentiment - Hero Arts on white paper and distressed with Tim Holtz wild honey and crushed olive
Ribbon - originally white but distressed with  Tim Holtz crushed olive 
Beads - from Hobby Craft

Am going to enter this card for the following challenges: - vintage, shabby chic or primitive, trash to vintage - simply sentiment

Have to take Zeenya for a hair trim and I need one as well... but am feeling a bit rough and she is kind enough to understand.

Catch you soon!

Lots of hugs and blog love,

A fabulous card - you are so clever at recycling. I tend to hoard things, and then think everywhere looks a mess, but still struggle to throw away, and never get time to use!
Love, Andrea xx

Oooh, I like it! I am also crazy about your new leaf punch. I haven't seen that one. I am a nut for leaves and trees. One day I'll prove it by using them to make some cards! lol!

I love the shabby chic look of this and how the background has so much texture to it!
