Welcome to day two of the hop.  Today I wanted to share with you a card that I created with the scraps from yesterday's canvas.   I love to immediately make a card with the scraps when I finish a project. It helps to clear away the clutter from my desk, and helps to keep the scraps low. 

I used scraps from the Never Grow Up Collections, Remember This and Sleep Over Papers, and half of a doily that didn't make it onto my layout.    I used the cut apart journal page from Garment District to hold my sentiment.
For the Petaloo flowers I used the Velvet Hydrangeas Cream, and a leaf from the Spring Berry Clusters. 


I love how these flowers add a touch of spring to this card.  They sparkled so much, that I decided to die cut a butterfly from some misted paper to accompany them.
Thanks for hopping with us today,

  1. I love seeing these in action, it's so hard to tell what they look like from a picture of a package on the internet. Definitely going to add Petaloo to my cart. Marion's papers are a bit hard to find, but I do purchase her downloadable products.

  2. Love your beautiful Spring card!! The velvet hydrangeas and berry picks are just so fun and your butterfly is delightful! TFS!

  3. Glitter, flowers and pretty papers! Your card is lovely. The butterfly looks very content among those pretty blossoms.
    Thank you for sharing! :)

  4. LOVE, LOVE your card!! Awesome job. :o)

  5. Good idea to use up the scraps from your scrapbooking to make greeting cards. That's much better than throwing them in a box for "sometime use".
    The card is beautiful.

  6. GREAT use of layout leftovers - LOVE your scrappy card, the colours & layers are beautiful and finished off perfectly with the delicate butterfly & sparkly flowers!!!

    ... I really need to take your lead because I find it quite difficult to manage my scraps :)

  7. I tried to choose just ONE thing I love about your card but I couldn't. I love all of it. From the colors to the materials used it's just a beautiful card.

  8. Love love love those iridescent flowers

  9. Love the card, Love colors!!! Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. Very nice1 I love the iridescent flowers. Will be looking for those at my local scrapbooking supply. TFS.

  11. Love the lavender colors and the sparkle!!
