Just Us Girls #652 - Word Week

Do you have a bunch of scraps that you would like to use up?  Then this week's challenge at Just Us Girls is perfect for you.  Ina is our host for Word Week and this is what she chose.

I ended up channelling Ardyth for my card.  She is a master of using small pieces to make a great graphic card. 

After using this die on previous cards,

all those little cuts from the J and Y were scattered on my desk and I saw a flower.  I plopped six of the cuts into CP Apricot ink and layered an extra one under each.  The center is a circle from MFT colored with CP Terra Cotta and the stem and leaf were hand cut.  I masked off the SSS sentiment to stamp the Happy part in Terra Cotta to add that color again. 

The Design Team and our guest Lynne Jardine have cards using scraps on the blog.  We'd like to see what you can do with them so we hope you add your card to the gallery.

Excellent dual use of your die! Great use of scraps for sure :)

Oh that is so clever Bobby, I would never have guessed it was made from your scraps and not an actual flower die! Love it!
Thanks for the welcome :)

Ingenious, Bobby! I would have tossed those pieces away! Such a pretty flower made from the inside of the *j* and *y*! Love this!
