The Joy of Left-Overs

I had an odd shaped piece of Yupo left-over from who knows when. Not only was it an odd shape, it was rather small, and of no use for a background. So, ink it up and see what happens ... the result was these two cards, both made from left-overs.
For the card above I die cut the bauble from the left-over and attached to the panel on foam dots. The bow was also cut from a left-over piece of gold glitter cardstock. This panel was on my desk so I placed it in my MISTI and stamped and heat embossed in gold the sentiment, then added a few sequins to finish.

Then, I started this card:
Along with the above bauble, I also managed to get this Candy Cane and Joy sentiment cut from the left over. I had the piece of dry embossed cardstock that was also on my desk just begging to be used, and it was perfect for my Candy Cane which I attached using foam dots, and also added the sentiment. All this card needed was a few of the pink dew drops that I added to the Candy Cane, and that finished this card. 

I just love it when cards come together as easily as these did and I hope you enjoy them.
