Mixed Medley and Pennant Parade Scrap Card

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Allow Serendipity To Intervene And Go With It!
Today's card began with some scraps on my craft table.  The Daffodil Delight card base had already been cut long ago, so I went ahead and scored it to create my card.  However, when I went to fold it, one side was longer than the other!  Apparently, when this card base had originally been cut, it was a leftover from something else and was not a standard size.  At first I was going to start over, but then I decided to go with it and allow one side to be shorter than the other.  When I spotted the punched circles I realized that I could "hang" them off the edge for a really cute card!  Next time serendipity intervenes, go with it!  You never know what will happen next!
It's amazing how colors you would never choose to put together actually look great together when you just go with it!  All of these circles were scraps from other projects at other times!  I stamped the sentiments from Pennant Parade and Mixed Medley and paired them with a rhinestone brad and some ribbon scraps.  I hope you like it!  I also hope you have a wonderful weekend - filled with love, laughter and creativity....and a bit of serendipity too!!!!!

You may be able to tell that I am travelling backward through your blog and catching up with comments. I think you are much like me, saving bits and pieces and hoping to give them new life. If I can focus myself on it, I just might have to make this a weekly challenge for myself. Thanks for the inspiration.
