365 Cards - Day 54 - Recycled Elements

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is Recycled Elements - We were challenged to recycle at least one thing and add it to our card. We were asked to look around and see if we can find something that might not ordinarily be used on a card. I am not sure if my card fits the challenge description.
I used a muesli bar box for the base of the card and the tag.
100% Recycled Double Sided Cardstock from K&Company for the flowers.
Recycled & Biodegradable Twine - from my DH gardening supplies.
See D's Stamp - Cabana
I used nestabilities for the flowers and then sanded the edges.

And my last recycled element was the light box I took the photo of the card in - I made it out of an empty Nappy Box and cutting one side out and added some Picture Framing Backboard around the sides and a halogen lamp.

Have a nice day.

This doesnt look 'recycled' at all, in fact its lovely.
I would love to have a light box as my photo's are not always the best because of the light, a few tips on making one would be great

Well, this is a fabulous recycling job! I love this card. Your flowers are perfect!
In case you haven't heard, I broke my halogen light that goes with my "purchased" light box. Now I'm at a loss of where to get a bulb replacement. Any ideas?
Love you card!!
