Upcycled Envelope.

This morning after opening my post I proceeded to dispose of the empty envelopes, that is until I discovered this


This gorgeous leaf design was hiding inside one of my envelopes. Now the challenge this week over on Make My Monday is Flowers and Leaves so I decided to use this in my Midweek Motivation piece - take a look


The main image is a Crafty Individuals stamp, stamped in black archival ink and sponged with some Stampin' Up inks. The cut out flowers are from the S'U set Everything Eleanor.

I shall be entering this card into the Gingersnaps Creations 'Glorious Greens' challenge.
