Delicious Doodles Challenge - January 2016 - Leftover (use up your scraps)

Happy New Year everyone!!

2016 has quickly crept upon us.  

It's time for another challenge over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog.  The topic for January 2016 is "leftover - use up your scraps".
For my card I have used the Delicious Doodles image called "Lilleth and the Lillies" and it is available from the Etsy Store.  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and added some Stickles glitter glue for some sparkle.

The card blank I bought from Hobbycraft last summer and I have chalked and inked around the flowers to highlight them a bit.

Onto the scraps.  The flowery backing paper I only had a piece a bit short of A6.  I used a strip to highlight the flower border inside.  On the top you can see snippets of the backing paper as I shall let you into a secret - there isn't any underneath the picture, just near the edges on places.  Waste not, want not eh?  I have used scraps of 3 different papers to make the flowers as well.  I used a short piece of ribbon - a scrap not long enough to make into a bow so I just folded over in a loop and added a button on the top.

I have finished the card off with a stamped sentiment, gems and pearls.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Love her hair! This a very pretty pink creation. I love your use of scraps. I tuck and fold and hide all the time. It depletes my stash and helps my creativity! Great project and nicely done! Thanks for dropping this into our mailbox here at 613 Avenue Create!
