And now for something completely different.....

For me, anyway! (My title's from a TV show, can anyone remember which one it was?!?) Right - let's get to it! There's a new challenge today at Delightful Challenges and this week it's 'Use Your Scraps', so that's how I came to do something completely different because I've paper pieced my background and I only used scraps on my card, and here it is:

What do you think? I think it's quite different to what I usually do!?! I've coloured the image with promarkers (using very Magic Roundabout colours LOL!) and then used all my Bazzill Basics card scraps to paper piece the background. I also used my Martha Stewart grass punch and a branch punch to make the flower stems. The flowers - one was a left over from a card last week and the other one is a MS punch, I used my Slice to cut out the clouds then added gems from my stash and a couple of butterflies (another MS punch).
I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:
Right, that's it from me for now. Have a great day everyone!! It's nearly the weekend!
