Recycled Material - Music Card

This easel music card is made using mostly recycled materials.  The image came from a magazine (I think it was an old issue of Martha Stewart Living), the flowers are dictionary pages, the music score is from a book I got at the thrift store, and those fancy "do-dads" (Prove Craft) and branches (punched with the MS branch punch) came from the bottom of a box used to ship paint (my husband brought it home to me). The sentiment is printed on my computer and matted on black cardstock.  I also used the circle/scallop nestabilities.
This card inspires me to sort through my "stash" and recycle more things!
Though I didn't make this card for any particular challenge -- there are two that I can enter it in
1. Stampin' Sisters In Christ - Use Flowers
2. Our Daily Bread - Recycle It
