Too good to waste

The packaging on a couple of prima flowers was too good to waste, so I've used two of the backing cards on these two quick and simple cards, adding Panduro flowers with brads to the first one and flowers from Hobbycraft to the second.

They are both A6 cards, although the photo makes one look bigger than the other. The birthday greetings are pink foiled, which doesn't show up in the photo, but the picture below gives a little idea:

These are for:

Kort o mania 114: anything goes as long as it's bling
Totally Gorjuss 252: bling
Whoopsi Daisy: throw on the flowers
Crazy challenge 179: three of a kind (three groups of flowers, 3 brads)
Crafting by designs: pretty in pink
Allsorts 275: pretty in pink
Eclectic ellapu: lady's birthday
Emerald faeries 59: springtime
Pink gem 127: it's summer time
Card and scrap 81: everything is allowed
Let's craft and create 96: anything goes
Craftin desert divas 39: anything goes
My craft creations: anything goes
Sister act 73
Crafting by design September: anything goes
DL.ART September: anything goes


  1. Very pretty Hazel!
    Great upcycle and I love the flowers on it too,

  2. These are both lovely. I do the same with the boxes that hubbies custard tarts come in! The packaging is too good to just throw away. Hugs Mrs A.

  3. They are lovely Hazel. Did you know I have blog candy up for grabs?
