Day 50 -- Digging Deep

Haven't play along at 365 Cards in what seems like forever!!  But when I saw today's challenge, I figured it was a good way to make a card and tackle some cleaning of my craft table.  The Day 50 challenge is called "Digging Deep" and asks to use three things:

1. An item that is more than a year old--the green card base from a DCWV box set (never could get around to use that colour)
2. Something that you were given that you have never used -- the decorative brad was from a big scrapbooking tote filled with goodies my sister gave me a couple of years ago too.
3.Something you forgot you had.-- the patterened paper is from a mat pad of K&Company Christmas Cheer paper (found it in the bottom of a drawer).

I decided to make an anniversary card (I have a lot of those coming up!), and when I saw the fab flower on this card that my blog buddy Lynn made last week, I knew I wanted to try one myself (check Lynn's blog for a link to a tutorial on how to make the flower).  So, without further ado, here it is:

Here's a close up of the flower--definitely want to practice making more.
