Ways to Use...frugal finds

Today's challenge was to use a frugal find on a card. Striking similar to the "green" challenge I hosted not too long ago...requiring you to recycle on the card.

A while back, I was in a white elephant swap and received, as part of the gag portion, a hostess set from probably the 50s...napkins, coasters, match boxes and paper ashtrays...haha. All in this funky roadrunner motif!

Of course, we had fun with the napkins and the matches are used. I kept one of the coasters with the intention to make it into a card for the gifter, Connie. Today was the day I did it! (You can be sure she'll be getting this card too! hehe)
