Recycled Floral Wrapping Paper Cards

When you get a prettily wrapped gift do you save the paper?  I do because I'm a pack rat. LOL! Every once in awhile this pack rat actually sorts through her 'stuff' and makes something.  The floral print paper actually came from my sister and guess what?.....she's getting the paper back in the form of an anniversary card (on the left)!  I liked the colors and texture of the paper.  It was a big gift so I still have lots of wrapping paper leftover.

I used the Lawn Fawn die to cut the floral wrapping paper and a Sizzix die to cut the label.  The sentiment was stamped with dark blue Memento ink and a Darice wood handled stamp (both purchased from HM Ben Franklin Crafts).  
This card is for a friend who likes the color lavender and is having a birthday soon.  The words were die cut from silver foil paper with a Die-Namics die.  Lavender doilies and coordinating flowers were chosen from my stash.    These were simple cards that will hopefully delight the recipients. I wonder if my sister will recognize the wrapping paper that she used on my birthday gift?
