Recycling Challenge February Use A Dryer Sheet

This card was made for the Feb recycling challenge on the Smeared and Smudged forum, where we were to use  a dryer sheet. Since I don't use them I was allowed to use a dried out wet wipe and I ended up using two. The stamped background, the flower and the heart are all made using dried out wet wipes.

The flower is made using TH tattered florals die, attached with a metal brad and the heart using sizzix heart shapes die layered with glue.
The background is stamped with an image from Smeared Ink rubber stamp club. 
The raven images are digital ones from Smeared Ink and I had already printed a couple of sheets of these in two sizes.

The card I made from a piece of black card and I cut and folded it into a 5.5inch square. I cut out the apperture using a spellbinders oval die   and used a spellbinders die cut for a frame. 
Stamping and inking were all using Adirondack Watermelon.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Qoth The Raven 
where they have a tic tac toe theme but because everything 
is related to E A Poe, it is:
tic tac poe 

   I have used Metal, Raven, Die cuts
which is the diagonal from top right to bottom left.
The brad attaching the flower is metal, I have used ravens and the flower, heart, card apperture and window frame are all die cut. 
(I have been gathering materials for the QTR challenge since it was posted as I always like to enter it as it is one of the few literature related (only?) challenges in blogland. And literature is my area! or was when my brain still worked! 
Then, when I was moving the card this morning I had one of those moments where we can only metaphorically slap our heads and say D'oh! 
Yes! I had made a QTR tic tac poe card automatically!)
