Partly recycled card

Hello dear bloggers,

Hope you are having a good week...

A warm welcome to my new followers - Jane and Sasha. Delighted to have you on board!

Here is a card I made late last night for a friend who has undergone a surgery.

Base card stock - multishaded mocha
Teddy stamp - Inkadinkadoh, stamped with Amercan Crafts clay and popped up with foam dots
Border punch - MS, distressed with Tim Holtz wild honey
Printed orange patch at the bottom - recycled from a Starbuck take away cup
Orange rose - made by me with coiled paper, distressed with peeled paint
Small flowers -punched from MS border punch
Leaves - punched from leaf punches and distressed with Tim Holtz wild honey and crushed olive

I am going to submit this card for the following challenges: - fall - punches and dies - distressing - orange and/or buttons

Will come and do my rounds soon.
