Does it need something?

Hello my clever and ever so lovely crafty pals. I know that I am supposed to be tidying up but I keep coming across bits of paper and card and thinking do I keep or not - decisions!  decisions!  . Well this card is bits that I couldn't decide on and now they have formed a very quick card, and as it came together so quickly I am left thinking , should I be adding more to it? I will add a greeting at some point. The white stuff in coming down at a fast and steady rate so I think we are in for a few bucketfuls. I was hoping it would stay away until all were safely in their homes especially as our eldest is on late shift tonight. Do we ever stop worrying about them! 
I can see you are all having loads of crafty fun as I wander around blogland, so many gorgeous creations and distractions. Thank you all for creating such enjoyment. 

Paper and card - card is a 6 inch square and everything else is bits,
also 3 brads 
Dies used – Spellbinders labels1 & square swatch. 
Marianne anja corner,  Cheery Lynn celtic weave
and Magnolia Doohickeys helebores.

  4. Hello Flora.. its snowing here and settling but thought this morning we had got rid of it.
    Well done for using up scraps to make your lovely card with, its very effective and yes I think agree it needs a sentiment to finish it off...


  5. Well go you Flora, that's what I call waste not want not. You've made a gorgeous card. Love those celtic borders.

  6. There are some lovely details on this card, and I think a decorative sentiment will finish this design off just beautifully!

  7. Hi Flora, boy you sure know how to use up scraps, lovely card and I adore the celtic borders. I keep throwing bits into a box and only hope when the day comes that I decide to put something together from it, it turns out as good as this.

  9. What a fantastic border. Great way to use up scraps. I have a mountain of scraps.

  10. beautiful card Flora, love the border die, as you say just needs a saying..pam

  11. You are probably right, a nice sentiment could do the trick. I usually reach for my box of spare bits and move them around until the right one appears. Hope you are staying safe and warm in all this snow. Hugs, Jenny x

  12. Its amazing what you can creatate from all those scraps. We are so bad at throwing away aren't we...lol
    Love it Flora and like everyone else I love the Celtic Border. A Sentiment would be a lovely addition I am sure.

  13. Good snowy afternoon,

  14. I agree with everyone else Flora, love that border and the colours you have used and a sentiment would be the perfect finishing touch

  15. Flora another great card made from those left over bits. I see my big sister Patricia has started her clear out - well that will mean my grandsons nursery and school will be getting a goodies bag of all those crafty bits. Thank for another great couple of e-mails that Patricia forwarded to me. Hazel

  16. Hi Flora,
    yes a great card made with your left over bits. I too love the border die cuts.
    I gave a lot of my bits I don't use anymore to my little granddaughter as she just loves crafting.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  17. Brilliant use of bits and pieces Flora - maybe I should have a plod through my bit box(es) some time - I'm sure I could do something with all the scraps.

    You have made a lovely card.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
