Default AOCC12C Re-purposing

I'm posting the inspiration for February 1. I am a pack rat, saving all sorts of items that look like they might be useful on a card. If you are a minimalist, this challenge may be difficult for you. Re-purposing: using an item that was not originally designed to be used on a card. For example, the silver seal on the top of a yogurt container, any type of packaging, old calendar photos, a design on a fancy envelope (as seen in my example). I've even hammered a beer bottle top flat for a card to my son at one time! Look around your house this week, and see what you can find!
My photo shows a card made with a picture that was on the outside of an envelope containing a calendar for TVO (a television station that is funded on donations, and this was an attempt to solicit my donation)
