Small Things with Great Love - Using up Scraps


I'm trying to get better at using up my pattern paper collections.  YES, collections!  Some of them are so pretty, I just hate cutting into them.  Case in point, this pretty piece from the Basic Grey Curio Line, when I cut into last week, I had a nice sized piece left, not wanting to toss it in the scrap pile, I salvaged it for today's card.



The area under the Verses sentiment is where I had cut the flower from to create this card, the sentiment hides it nicely.  The little bird I've added was also from that same scrap, I just cut around him and adhered him to the sentiment to fill in some white space.

I always love how you make such beautiful art with the designer paper. That was great how you used the bits and pieces from behind the sentiment. Beautiful job.
