Today I am showcasing Just Blooms Paper Flowers and White & Clear Buttons. The paper I used was Mischief, Animals Cookie and Notebook (all retired now).

I added some silhouette stamping from the Childhood Portrait Stamp Set and some flourishes. I also added some left over black spotted ribbon.

I created a cluster of flowers and buttons after stamping a flourish and using is as my guide where to place the flowers.

In the upper corner of the right page I added a card and decorated is with flourish,
Chipboard Heart, a flower, and a button. Lastly I used a few stickease letters from my Wings L1 kit.

Now hop on over to Bethany Harlan's Blog for more ideas of using up your stash.
