Using leftovers

Just popping in today to share a card I made using some leftovers from a couple of projects.


I was making an Easter card for an upcoming CAS(E) This Sketch post and 
thought this Crate Paper patterned paper would work well as the background, but it didn't.
So, I used it on this card instead, along with a Pretty Pink Posh diecut (that
was left over from making another card, where I used the negative of this oval die).
I stamped on it using Simon Says Stamp's Blessed stamp set
and added a couple of PTI buttons to finish it off.

Thanks for looking!

I thought you were going to tell me you cut all those circles and glued them on, Leigh. You could you know. Or I could. Either way it makes a great background.

Really love that patterned paper! Turns a simple one layer background into all sorts of interesting! So love it paired with those pastel buttons, and the crisp white cardstock makes everything pop. Really pretty card, Leigh! And a fabulous use of scraps!
