Imported PDF into sign vector program and found that the veins (right piece) were vectors but the left side that's the actual leaf were not.

Exported PDF as a PNG and then opened in paint.net - erased right half that I didn't need. Magic wand globally selected white, invert selection and paint lines black to make sure they were clear, invert selection and delete background. Contiguous color fill the leaf and saved. Import into a program like ink scape and auto trace/vectorize. Smooth, reduce nodes, and import other half of leaf. size and rotate slightly so that the parts align properly again. Separate halves, save, and upload back to ya.

I have to admit I will not be using this dxf, but the instructions you left are worth a million! Thank you.
