It`s a Rose Again"

Hello Blog friends.  Thank you for calling by my little corner of Blogland great to have you here.
I hope you enjoy your visit.  If I manage to give you just a little bit of inspiration and encouragement I will be very happy.
Today`s card is one I made using Bits and Pieces that were needing cleared away.  You know the scene these Bits go in a Pile till you know they HAVE to be tided away.   Rather than do that I decided to use them.  Gave myself a challenge to use as many of the bits as possible.   Apart from the Base Card everything else is "Bits and Pieces" left from cards I have been working on.   Some of of it would have gone in the bag that I keep for the boys school.  There is still plenty left for them.

Base card approx 5 x 7 Centura Pearl
Pale pink Co-ordinations
Paper printed from My Craft Studio Floriography CD No2
Doily a Cheery Lynn Die I had cut and did not use
Perfume bottle was made from a Spellbinder Christmas Ornament Die also cut and never used over Christmas.   I chopped off the bottom and top.  Made a silver top for contrast.  Did some Stickles on the bottle to give it texture.
Card embossed using Spellbinder Folder, edge cut using Borderbilities Dies
Rose made from the printed MCS paper
Crealies die cuts for the foliage
Pearls and Dazzler form my stash
Triple Bow from Organza Ribbon

That`s it for today
Thank again for popping in I really do appreciate it

    Another beauty from you .. .. just shows what you can do with those leftovers we all let pile up.

    I don't know if you enter challenges but if you do this is a lovely one.

    Very friendly and a place where everyone uses up their leftovers .. .. whatever they may be. Not always paper!

    Di, the lady who runs it is lovely and there are always laughs going on. Just what the world needs.

    Have a good day.
