Lots of odds and ends

Do you have a paper box full of odds and ends that are too small to be of much use but too precious to throw away? And an embellishment box full of "the last one" of things you've had for years and don't want to think they really ARE finished? Phewww, I'm so glad it isn't just me!

All kinds of odds and ends have come into play on this card - a cute little wood-and-felt rabbit given to me by Claire from Ninja Killer Cat ,  a skeleton leaf I've had since just about every card anybody made had a skeleton leaf on it (in fact I believe they were officially compulsory for a while, weren't they?), some hand made paper from about the same time, some card randomly dyed with coffee grounds which was a surprise find in the shop at The Eden Project some years ago, a die cut leaf made for a project that never got off the ground..... in fact I don't think anything new went into this card at all, except the background kraft card and the glue!

Oh, the envelope, that's new, I won it in a giveaway on the wonderful blog  Hope and Chances. But it goes perfectly with this card.

I'm playing along at
