House Mouse Challenge - On A Budget

This weeks challenge on House Mouse & Friends is:

With the economy in mind and the looming credit crunch we are all watching the £'s/$'s so i would like you to make a card (or whatever you choose to make) for less than £1/$2.
Your stamps and colouring pens/pencils are excluded from the price/budget.
You may also use any tools you have to create the card/project.
Items you may have received for free/in a swap or a RAK may be used but they must have an estimated value/cost.
Please remember to work out the cost for everything else:
card blank
any papers and card used
DST, glue etc (obviously this won't be much so a small estimate is fine).

Again i have tried to change my style (anyone would think i'm going through a mid-life crisis!!!)
I love cards that make the use of the white space on their cards which is something i rarely do so thought i would try and do it 'simple style'.

The cost!!
Card blank - 10p
flower - 10p
sticky gems - 8p
wool - from a ball i was given estimated cost is less than a penny but i will call it 1p
DST-only used a tiny amount to sick the image on the inside so will call it 1p
Tag & brad - 10p
Total cost.............£0.40

Wow, all that for 40p. Great stamp and love how you've coloured the image in.
