Using leftovers

Today, I have two cards to share, as well as a layout.

I made the two cards using some leftover Fresh Cut Floral die cuts that I had 
stored with my dies.
where the challenge is to add dimension to our cards.

They're very similar, both using Fresh Cut Floral stamps & die cuts 
and a sentiment from Funky Feathers.
I also used some PTI card stock, buttons & twine.
I heat embossed my sentiment with sea foam white embossing powder.

And, I have  a layout to share.

I came across my Create: Sketches book from last spring recently and remembered 

Well, obviously that fell by the wayside a bit, 
but I thought I'd continue with the challenge.
I was trying to remember why I'd stopped, when I noticed the next sketch:

It's a sketch where they want you to use a really large photo. 
For a 12x12 layout, I'd have to use an 8x12" photo, which I didn't have.

However, I did find an 8x10 in my photos, so I decided to use it for my layout.

I used some Basic Grey patterned paper & embellishments.
I also used my PTI Book Print dies (uppercase & numbers) and some stamps from
my Destination stamp set.

If you create a layout using this sketch,
please link it here in my comments or here in the PTI forum.

Thanks for looking!
