The Flower Challenge #66 Use Scraps

Hi friends, wow it's March already...how did that happen? lovely to see all the Spring flowers emerging at this time of year too, ours is mainly a Spring garden so I love this time of year.

Anyway I am here to share another card I made for 'The Flower Challenge' and this month our theme is 'Use Scraps'. We all have those  left over bits and pieces lying around our craft rooms or craft areas so I thought what a great idea to try and use them all up on a card.

I have no end of scraps in little pots so I raided them and here's what I came up with. Hope you will join in too and use up all those pesky little left over bits....just remember to add a flower or more as your main image as usual ;)

Our talented Guest Designer this month is Juhi Khanna, she makes amazing cards too, see what she made on our blog!

Enjoy your week whatever you are up to ;)




I found an old piece of card I had inked up using some alcohol inks ages ago. I wasn't keen on the piece so it languished in my 'bits' box. I used my hexagon die to cut it up and I liked it a lot better. ;) 

I also found this pretty silver flower die cut (I had cut three a while ago and only used one) and a sentiment so used that here too...win win !

I added a few silver pearls from Pink Fresh Studio and mounted it all on a spare piece of silver card and job done.









Please add our cue card below when you add your card to your blog. You have until the 25th March to enter our challenge.

Vivien, what an elegant and gorgeous card, the colors on those hexagons are delicious, bright and perfectly combined. The little silver flower sits perfectly on top of them.
Beautifully done, my dear.

Stay healthy and safe.
