Me and my paper scraps...

Now, that would have been a good name for my blog, "Me and My Paper Scraps!"   I find it very hard to throw away little pieces of coloured card and paper, 'cause I know I can always punch something 'useful' out of them which of course means I have a boxful of little plastic bags filled with a rainbow of shapes.  

I have butterflies, lots of them, (whatever did we do before the little butterfly die from SU! I wonder at times...) - then there are the bags of flowers, tiny flowers, medium flowers, modern flowers, big Tim Holtz flowers... and more butterflies, and of course you can always punch out circles before the scraps end in the wastepaper bin.  So I have a bag of 1/4 inch, 1/2 inch and 1 inch circles, and I do use them believe it or not.  They are grand for making centres in the aforementioned flowers, or for making into punch art, or for simply pasting on in a random manner and then running the resulting 'art' through the Cuttlebug to emboss it all firmly in can be seen on this card 

Anyway, I was obviously inspired by the bag of flowers for this card, every now and then I used a teeny tiny pearl as centres, others just got a wee black dot.  I like it!
