Using Up Scraps . . .

Happy Day All!
The past couple of days I've shared with you card created
using flowers and today I'm using up some scraps that were left
over from those creations and a few others.
To me, making flowers takes additional time and I certainly don't want
to be throwing any scraps away so I created this card . . .

I pulled a scrap of designer paper out of my scrap box for the background
(DCWV I believe) and these leaves & flower were laying on the table.
When I have left over 'frames' that I've cut and not used, I always
hang them on a hook on the pegboard for future use.  I thought these
would work well today.  

I must admit, I DID have to die cut the inside white panel
for my sentiment and I dug a couple of the tiny pieces of watercolor paper
from the trash to punch the butterflies.

All in all, I think it pulled together to made a nice card!
What do you think?

It's always a good thing to use up scraps; something that I seldom do. Your card is beautiful and if I could make something like that with scraps I might do more. You have inspired me!

Hooray for scraps and it turned out beautiful! I always have left over frames and mats, too, and I also dig in the wastebasket for little parts like that. Sheesh, stampers! Those little butterflies were worth the digging. Very pretty, Darlene!
