Less is More Week 56

 
A great challenge at Less is More this week!
 
 
This week we have a simple recipe for you to follow which is to use some of those left over bits and pieces we all tend to keep so this week

Don't Scrap it!
 
 
 
My card is made from a "test" piece!
 
I recently bought some gilding flakes from Indigoblu (Winter Dawn) and needed to try them out! 
 
Stamp is Carnation Flower Head by Stampingbella
 
I finished the card by colouring the image with DI Tattered Rose and Tea Dye and adding a ribbon.
 
 
 
 
 
 Just a little close up of the detail you can get with the flakes.
 
 
 
 
 I keep all my scraps in this "rescued" unit. Each drawer holds a different colour. Would love to alter this unit this summer - ideas on a postcard please!!!

Super idea with the scraps drawers different colours for each - I manage my offcuts of cardstock in a similar fashion. I need to try those IndigoBlu flakes too but there are some other priorities first. Good idea using your test piece for LIM.
