Lets Scrap It at Less Is More.

The theme this week on Less Is More is to use up your scraps.  I have loads of scarps lying about so it wasn't difficult to find some. The problem was using them on a CAS card.

So I decided to paper piece with them. I did the 4 flowers.
 Here's Baby Belle watching the scarps, she sat on my knee when i was cutting out the flowers, have to say it was a difficult job with her there!! Shes not really a baby anymore!!
