Using up the scraps ...

My friends won't believe me because I have a reputation for not ever using up scraps, infact they make me come out in a cold sweat just thinking of a 'scrap box' but these scraps were just sitting on my work table looking at me ... I almost threw out the paper that I'd used to make another card ... but I wanted to make a little card for a friend who just got engaged and they all just kind of looked like they would work together for what I wanted to do. So ... I used up those scraps! to make this card (just pretend that I had enough paper to cover the box too but I didn't quite have enough so don't tell anyone)
 
 
I used:
Petal Fresh papers by Nitwit Collections at LiliOf The Valley 
Carnation and daisy flowers, beaded spiral embellishments, heart charm, pins, pearls, lace and ribbons all from Ribbon Girl
Papertrey Ink sentiment
Heart die - sizzix
Corrugated white card
