Celebrating leftovers

I made this card with snippets left over from a 6x6 Echo Park Christmas stack. (I didn't actually save anything this small, I cut them to fit). I arranged the snippets on a snippet of adhesive paper, leaving space between for "grout," or in this case, gold EP.  On edges where I didn't leave enough room to add embossing powder, I just edged in gold ink.

The poinsettia is from The Ribbon Girl, and the sentiment was a clearance special, embossed in glittery gold.
