Flowers flowers and more flowers

Josette here with another fun card.  This card is nothing but die cuts, a little glitter and a simple saying.  I call this my scrap card.  When I am making backgrounds, there are often many failed attempts.  Either the wrong color or "something" just not right.  Additionally, whenever I have a puddle of ink on my craft sheet, I "mop" it up with a piece of water color paper.  I buy my water color paper in very large tablets and cut them down.  There is always that 1-2 inch strip of paper left over. That is what I use for mopping up,  or testing a color.  Additionally, there are times when I need to cut down a background, those large scraps get saved.  I have a little bucket of these color swatches and it is from this bucket that I made todays card was created from.
This entire card is made from left overs, even the ribbon.  Turned out well.

Stop my my blog today for a detailed description of how I made this card. Josette's Blog
All of the die cuts and the sentiment stamp are available at Sweet Stamp Shop.
