Kaboodle Challenge 4 'non-traditional embellishments'

Does any one recognise this?

Yes it's what my hubby buys me flowers in. I'm so sorry about the pic but it was dark when I took it.
The flower wrap bag ....thingy, I don't know what the proper name is....but I don't like throwing them away and keep them all for inspiration- especially when they have pretty flowers like this one. Well, anyway here we go...

Kaboodle would like you to use anything re-useable and re-cyclable, tickets, carriers, bottle tops etc..
Like the previous card I chomped away on the diagonal and edged all around the card with normal pink pigment ink pad, on the front corner I've used one of my Stempelglede stamps from Gunhild, Grunge corner 022( thanks Gunhild), these are beautifully cushioned stamps and I was lucky enough to win in the candy, then the flower has been cut from the wrap and put a safety pin and some old string through it, glue dot to adhere it to the edge of the card. The inside check square papers are from Kaboodle Picnic kit and a hand stamped sentiment which is an old QVC foam stamp. It stamps beautifully. I love it. Finished!!! Hope you likey :)

As I'm quite chuffed with this card, I might enter it into a really special blog candy.
