Frugal Friday #2 Challenge

I am really enjoying these Frugal Friday Challenges, and if you would like to know more,
or even join in, you will find Lizy's challenge HERE.

Basically, you take a pile of scraps from your desk and make something with them.
Here's what I made today with some of yesterdays scraps.

The colour combo was Real Red and White with a hint of Silver Glimmer.
Here's the pile of scraps that I used.

The piece of Fresh Prints DSP that was a left over, wasn't big enough to use as the central mat,
on this card, so I pieced it together with a scrap of White which I embossed with
the Textured Impressions Delicate Designs embossing folder
 (it looks like a patchwork quilt on the back of this layer!).
I punched an Extra Large Oval out of this piece of DSP before I layered it onto a piece of Whisper White card stock from my scrap box (it had a dirty mark in the middle) which I had gutted and used the
reverse side of the middle piece for the Oval Designer frame which was embossed and then fussy cut out.
The extra large oval piece of DSP was then glued into the oval frame.
I shaped the punched Petite Petal flowers and punched and shaped 1/4" circles for the flower centres,
and cut leaves out (with the Bird Builder Punch) from the scraps of Silver Glimmer Paper.
The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped then punched with the Word Window punch. 
This was then stuck onto a piece of Real Red (which was punched from the piece of
card stock used for the first layer) using the Modern Label punch.
This was a really Frugal Friday card!!
I did use a completely new white base card - otherwise the other bits were all left overs.
