Finally Friday Challenge!!

If you're anything like me, you have some sort of file or container that you put all your scrap paper in. You figure at some point you'll use them. And your scrap DSP, no matter how small, well that is saved in a special place, because you couldn't bear to throw it out!! That's what I do!!

So the challenge today is to create a card, project or whatever using scraps! The only catch is at least one scrap needs to be DSP!!

Good luck!

This is my card. Everything I had pretty much exactly precut too! This card is on it's way out the door to my MIL who is having surgery today, so I hope it helps to brighten her room!

I used the embrace life stamp set. I stamped the large flower in saffron on the saffron pieces. The DSP is retired spring flowers which I love! The sketch is from SCSs sketch challenge. I used the distressing tool on the edges of the artichoke and main image. I trhink that along with sponging the main image really softened the card. I used crystal effects to add some dazz diamonds to the flowers.

Stamp set: Embrace life CS & ink: Saffron, artichoke, pretty in pink, close to cocoa, mellow moss Accessories: Artichoke grosgrain, vintage brads, sponge, cutter tool kit, aquapainter, spring flowers DSP.

Thanks for stoppin' by!

I save pretty much all my scraps, until they end up in my daughter's scrap box! I just made an Easter card today with scraps of my Bali Breeze paper, I will post it on my blog tomorrow!

Great project! I miss that paper! I should do this since I have tons of scraps; just need to organize them, like that'll happen! LOL
