I really had trouble making this card for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Not that the sketch was hard to follow but because I just couldn't find an image amongst my stamps that I felt was suited to it.

Then whilst shuffling through the papers in my drawer out fell a flower that I'd cut from class papers for a scrapbook page,rooting around some more I found the remaining offcuts. I love "Crate Paper" and had already used most of the offcuts on other cards .The collection was called Bliss and the papers I used here were "Impulse and Dreamy" I used my lovely new Martha Stewart punch on a strip of the paper which I laid under the ribbon and used 3 of the punched daisies from it showing the reverse of the paper down the right edge.I finished them off with some self adhesive stones by Papermania then stamped matted and layered the sentiment and glued it in place.Just goes to show that it's worth keeping all those off cuts!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday,
Thanks for stopping by,

THis is a really clever use of off cuts. I am now going to dive into my paper box and see what I can find:)
