Odd sized paper??

**Attention:  Looking for the Glue Dots © and Buttons Galore & More blog hop?
Scroll down to the next entry post for all the information!!**

 We've all been there.  Messed up on a sheet of pretty paper...and now you don't have enough for a standard sized card base.  The remedy is here for you!  Add some paper filler!
My paper was not 11 inches...but it was 4.25 inches wise.
I ripped the edge of Shocking Pink Sorbet Paper from The Robin's Nest. 
Score at 5.5 inches.  Then add another piece of paper (5.5 x 4.25 inches) to the front.


I embellished the front with Green Leaves Rumple Ribbon from Lovebug Creations.
The Tag is Kimi Sorbet from The Robin's nest.
Pink and Green...a great spring color combo!!





The back side has the stunning glitter look from The Robin's Nest.



Remember to decorate the inside with some Sorbet Paper too!


Just lovely, don't you think?
