Distress oxides and partly recycled

Hello dear bloggers,

Here is my card to show you today. The leaf has been die cut from the lid of a Nestle yoghurt jar and so has the thank you sentiment. The background has been done with three or four distress oxides. This card looks much prettier in real life.

The backdrop for this card is handmade paper from Thailand which has been made from elephant poop. Lol. A close friend's daughter got it when she went on a school trip. My younger one (who was all of seven then) kept smelling it from time to time to check for poop smell only to be surprised that there was none. 





I will enter this card in:

Wish you card making full of joy and fun,

Monica

What a gorgeous card Monica - love the slight texture in the leaves and sentiment and the fabulous background you have created.
Love the story about the paper! That's recycling to the max!
