Card with Paper Scraps

As a paper-crafter, we all have paper scraps lying somewhere in your craft room. I have a few small stash of them and never seem to use them after putting them aside. The Paper Scraps Challenge  over Moxie Fab World really prompted me to examine them with fresh eyes! 

I have a few negative flower diecut from previous projects. So I utilized the Basic Grey Paper (Piccadilly and Hello Luscious) and cut them into strips, arrange them to create the flowers. 
happy birthday to you
The sentiment is from SRM Stickers. They work so well with the ribbons. 
Add a text stamp and two buttons-voila! I am happy to see the result! Hope you have a great day!

This is a fantastic idea! I have a few die cut negative space papers that I have been wanting to use, but wasn't sure what to do with. This will also work well with butterflies and hearts. I am excited to try it! Thank you for the inspiration! :)
