I love the decorative papers that Stampin’ UP! has for us to use and just cannot bear to waste any of it if I can help it. I recently was cutting papers from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper for a project and had a whole bunch of pieces left, some of them as small as 1 3/8 x 1!

I chose a couple of the colors from the paper, in this case Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz and created a whole bunch of ‘Thank You’ cards which I sent out to the lovely people who chose to shop for the SU goodies with me in September.
