Dance In the Rain

I am the Forest Ranger on SCS. As the Forest Ranger, it seems appropriate that I host "forest" card swaps. My 10th swap has just ended. It was Rain in the Forest... swappers were asked to create RAINy cards.

As a bonus, if a swapper used a repurposed/recycled/found  item on her cards (and told  me about it), she got an extra card in her return envelope.

This is the card I made for the swappers who took me up on the bonus offer:




Can you figure out what the recycled item is on my card???


I used a die to cut the flower out of a panel from the old (worn out) vertical blind that used to hang at our back door.

Here's the inside of my card:
