A Summer Retirement

Today is my last day using this pink flamingo paper. This is a great way to use up scraps for paper we hoard every spare inch of. Cut it up as squares and use it in your layouts! I used my square punches but you can cut up your paper with your paper cutter in whatever size suites your design. I layered my dp on tempting turquoise cardstock. On top of that I layered a scalloped pink piece with my sentiment from the past year's sale-a-bration. I earned this stamp set free and it was great to use it. I know it's retired but it works great for this card. I cut a flower from one of the dp papers and used that as an image for my card.

I hope that you enjoy it!

Wonderful card! I love how you've used the DSP for the squares - I'll have to try that to use up some of those itty bitty pieces I can't bear to throw away...
