Charity Cards

Following on from yesterdays post this is a card I made using the left over papers from Saturdays Lili of the Valley challenge card.
This is a 7x5" card, I edged the Pink Bazzill with the Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace border punch set. Then I used the rest of the A4 Lilac glittered paper and cut arount the individual flowers and leaves on the paper to create the border on the left hand side. A Tatty Ted decoupage topper from my 'toppers' box, inked the edge with distress ink and there you go, a card using the bits left from another card!
I am finding this easier as you have already decided on a colour scheme, and lets face it, how many of us crafters have 'bit boxes' of stuff to use 'later', and yet most of us still get out another full sheet of card before checking the 'bit box'!
Hopefully I can keep this up and the charity can help more children.

Happy Crafting
