Designing with Leftovers

Sometimes I leave pieces of used card stock sitting around hoping for inspiration for future designs. That's how I came up with this card. The Flirty Flamingo card stock had been used to cut out the Flourish and just sat there begging to be used. I also had a scrap of Mint Macaron sitting on my table and decided the colors would work well together. Then there were the extra flowers I had cut from the Whisper White that worked nicely on the layers. I added the pearls and still thought the card needed a little something extra. So I grabbed a small scrap of Watermelon Wonder to cut out just the flowers using the same Flourishing Thinlit and slipped those into the openings on the flourish. A bow of Thick Whisper White Baker's Twine added the finishing touch.
