Use your scraps- Create Geometrical patterns

Hi there friends!
This is my second post to show how to use your scraps... Motivated by the current challenge at lulupu
Here I have made two cards using my scraps..
have a look..
The scraps are from the cover page of LA CREAME paper stack from DCWV. Notice the patterned squares??
well these are the small display pictures you will find in the top corner of the cover..I loved them and didn't want to waste... so layered them to black cardstock
This second card again uses the cover page of LA CREAME paper stack.It was so gorgeous that I thought of including it in some of my project.
You might have noticed the cover page has some tiny tits bits of the inside pages..I used them to create this card...these were 2 squares on the cover page around 1.5 to 2 inches each .I didn't want to throw away these so just chopped then and layered them..
the small flower is also from the same cover ..but the scrap paper was so small that the flower could not come out as full as it should have been..

Both the above two cards used base cardstock which is from a single wedding has such a beautiful vanilla colour and awesome thickness! I could not resist the urge to make use of them..

How did I plan?
1- I planned to make cards with monochromatic theme so sorted my scraps accordingly
2- black and white or black and cream look most stylish and elegant in geometrical patterns!  I seriously think so ..therefore tried to create sharp and straight patterns..
Submitting it to the following challenges-
hope you like my way of using these scraps..
please leave your comments..
