Using Leftovers

Good Morning, Crafters!

Have you ever set out to make a card and made flowers and embellishments, only to find out through the middle of the process, that what you have made doesn't really work with the current project? Well, I have many times; and so I lay those pieces aside in hopes that somewhere down the road there will be a good use for them. Sometimes they lay unused for months.

Today's card is made from former castaways that didn't fit together for what they were made. So I gathered some that had colors that went together and made something from them. The flowers are from SU Botanical Thinlets; the doily is from Memory Keepers Antique Doily; the foliage is from Spellbinders Sprigs; circle is Spellbinders Standard Circles. I don't remember the die used for the butterfly. It's been lying around for a long time. Sentiment is from a discontinued SU stamp. Liquid pearls adorn the flowers and the butterfly.

I am entering this card in the following challenges ending:

Romans 10:9-10
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.  NLT

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God--something the law of Moses could never do."  NLT
