Using up those Scraps #4

Hi everyone.  It's my turn to share something over at She's a Sassy Lady this month.  And of course I have to share it here with all my fabulous followers :-)  Thanks for supporting my little old blog, my friends.

I have another card, made from scraps to share with you this month.  I am working my way through my colour scraps, and I am on purples now :-)

First off I dug out some scraps from my stash.

As I was going to die cut some flowers, using the Heartfelt Creations Delicate Asters, I used the negative as a stencil and inked up one of the papers with flowers.

Then it was just a case of putting the card together. I am using up those 8" by 3" cards I have.  After deciding on a layout, I inked all the edges of all the layers before adding them to the card base.

I love these delicate Asters and I will be forever grateful of Andie of Contagiously Crafty, for her generosity.  

For the inside, I used the same papers as the front, then added a small panel to leave a message, using the stencil again to add one inked flower.

To finish off the front I added a couple of ticket sentiments, that are from a Polka Doodles CD.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
