Hi there! :)  I am ticking through my To Do list, but wanted to be sure to stop in and visit with you for a little bit this morning!  I hope that your week is off to a good start.  I have a couple of cards that I wanted to share with you today.   I needed to make a card for hubby's sweet cousin who got married this weekend.  Yay!! (Very sweet wedding!)  I started by matching the card colors to their wedding invitations. I wanted to keep the card simple, so I sat on one hand as to not over stamp, glitter or embellish!  (Kidding!) Once I finished with the card and was picking up the leftover pieces from the Big Shot cutting, I thought the left over pieces might make a decent card themselves!  So, I tucked them away and decided I'd give that a try!  Turns out the scraps make a pretty cute card too! Here is the first card:

 I used two die cuts form the Sunshine Wishes Framelit set and the sentiment is from a past Paper Pumpkin (3 big shout outs for the Pumpkin!!  Whoot, whoot, whoot!) kit. 
 These Framelits are so intricate and pretty!  I really love them! Happy life to the sweet couple!  *sniffles!*

Ok, onto the leftover pieces!  Here is what I did with those:

I just thought they were too cute to toss!!  This card uses the center from the hearts in the first card and the background piece they were cut from!  (I only used one of the two.) I used the same color scheme, but added a little flair! I stamped some background doodles from the Watercolor Wishes set and stapled a little banner sentiment in place.  I embossed both of the Wisteria Wonder pieces to add some texture.

I raised the center heart up with dimensionals and added a Rhinestone, because a little bit of shimmer makes for a happy card!

 I love that you can get multiple uses from this set.

Here are the supplies I used to make these guys:

Ok, I am off to tackle the rest of that To Do list!  I hope you have a super day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!  Happy Tuesday!

You are so brilliant! What a great way to use those leftovers!! Two fabulous designs in one effort!!!

Hope you are well. I'm still without my computer, so no blog fun for me... suffering major withdrawals!!

I love that nothing went to waste. Great idea on using everything. The textures look really good with the layout.
