LIM Week 56 - Don't Scrap It

The challenge this week on Less is More - is "don't scrap it", that is use up your scraps of paper, so that means I've also been waiting for the gates to open at Pixie's Crafty Snippets to show my card for this week.
After seeing a card on Sarita's blog this week I had an idea in my head for using half a nestie, and it fitted perfectly with this week's challenges, so here it is. Using SU scraps, a Gourmet Rubber sentiment and an Anna Griffin swirl. Butterflies from MS punch.
I do feel seeing everyone's LIM creations each week has helped me grow creatively and become a little more CAS when I want to be.

Hi Linby - firstly thanks for the 'button' link. I'm just home from Oxford but will check it out ASAP. Next, what a gorgeous card and so clever using half Nesties. You know I adore pink too so this ticks all the boxes for me - snippets reducing at all? Nope, I thought not - same here :( Di xx

Just pushed Di outta the way cos I love pink too and this card is full of pink lushness. Like that idea of only using half a nestie.
Got me thinking outside of the box now.Ionly just made it through the gates this week. I blame playing on the pogo sticks. Hugs Mrs A.
