What 'cha gonna do?

No gardening today!
It's a pretty miserable day weather-wise.  Temps are in the 50's, and no sun.
A perfect day to hibernate and make some cards.  
Actually, my mother is having some friends from church over tomorrow to make some cards for individuals on the prayer chain.  She asked me if I'd get some easy ideas together. 
I cut papers for 5 people to make 3 different cards.  When I opened the package of cards and envelopes I had in my stash, I discovered the cards were 4 x 5.5" and I had cut everything for 4.25 x 5.5".  That meant I had to cut 1/4" off of many of the pieces.  This left me with a small pile of skinny strips next to my paper trimmer.  Those strips are now on the card above.  I just love playing with scraps.
Papers are from SEI.  Stamps and glitter tape are from CTMH.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Creations Challenge - It's all about "S" (Skinny paper Strips; Seven tiny Stamped flowers; Scalloped circle, SEI papers, CTMH Stamps)
