Using up Scraps!

One thing that most Paper crafters have in common is we own WAY too much paper!  I certainly am guilty of buying paper much faster than I use it.  It's just all so pretty, and I know one day I will find the perfect craft for it!
When I do open a pack of paper and use part of it for a craft, there are always little scraps left.  As you can probably tell, I am very attached to all of my paper.   Unless the scraps are teeny pieces, they go into my "scrap bag".....which is also growing exponentially!  I needed to make a couple thank you cards for clients of mine, so I decided to see if I could slim down my scrap bag a bit!
Most of the scraps I selected are leftover from a workshop I had before Christmas (using the retired CTMH Sparkle & Shine Paper Pack).  I decided to add the Gypsy (purple) pieces as well for a fun pop of color.  The slate cardstock is for the base of the card.
Here is my creation!  The only other thing I added was a strip of silver shimmer trim to add some sparkle to the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by!  Let me know if you've got other fun ideas for using up scraps.
