Kit Kraft Wednesday - Leftovers!

Tomorrow is that one day a year where leftovers are part of the fun, but this post isn't about Thanksgiving leftovers . . . no turkey, potatoes or stuffing . . . this is about using leftovers from my Button Farm Kit, specifically a kit from two years ago.  I created these two cards for two challenges. I love that I was able to use both paper and embellishments from this kit. 

First up is the Less is More challenge, which was "Jingle All the Way."  For this challenge, I went with bells, as they were leftover from my kit. 

 There was no stamping on this card, except for the inside sentiment.  I had stickers left to use for the sentiment on the front of the card. 

For my second card, I used this week's Muse card for inspiration.  Here is there card . . .

I was inspired by the overlapping tags and the way that the sentiment and the elements overlap the tags.  Here is my card . . .

This card has minimal stamping.  It's all about the combination of these great pattern papers.  The hounds-tooth background along with the musical note paper for the tags, the beige pattern paper for the tag toppers, and the chevron stripe paper for the ornament is a combination that works very well together.  I used stamps and dies from My Favorite Things.  

Two great challenges and an opportunity to use supplies on hand!  Can't as for more than that on a Wednesday.  Hope you find some time to create over this long holiday weekend.
