Using Scraps 6 - Wishing Your Happiness

So I know that I've had that dark blue flower in my scrap bin for many, many years and I'm happy to use it up on this card.  As well, the inky circle and the yellow frame have also been hanging around for a while :-)  
This card was created based on Kim Kesti's sketch.  Of course her sketch is a square card but I wanted mine to be a regular A2 size.  To create the effect of square, I added the dark blue strips of cardstock down both sides! 

I tell you the Sept/Oct issue of Paper Crafts magazine is truely chalk full of great inspiration!!   I have one last card to share tomorrow!

Wow, you mean we're actually supposed to use those scraps in the scrap bin?? Gorgeous blue flower; I can see why you held onto it!

You hang on to stuff for "years, and years" I try my best, but after awhile the smaller bits find their way to my DD craft table.
I think this card turned out just beautifully. The focal image is so vibrant and fun. Great job!
