What do you do with scraps?  I confess, I am a scrap hoarder.  I don't want to throw them out because I might need them for some small die cut or other project.  Sometimes I think they are taking over.  About a year ago I received a package from a fellow crafter.  She gives away some of the items she had not used in a while.  I receive a large package with lot of goodies.  Over the months I have used many of the items received but I have this bag of scraps that has been hanging around.  Lots of paper and some small embellishments.  

I used two different patterned papers from the bag.  One of which was double sided. 

What did I come up with?  This crazy patterned card.  I mad the flower/rosette with the same papers cut out of circles and added a little distress ink.  
The image is one of my left over Riley's that I colored for last weeks challenge.  

Thanks for stopping in.....

  3. Adorable card Teresa! Love the fancy embellishment!

  4. Love your girl! and what a great way to use those scraps! This card is wonderful. (and Psst...being a scrap hoarder myself...completely understand. THEY DO takeover!)

  5. You did a wonderful job using scraps for your card. Colors are great, I love it! I hate to throw any paper away too. I've been punching 1" squares out of all my small pieces that can't be cut down any further, and sometimes I'll make some small 3x3 cards. But now I've got a whole box of 1" square scraps!! Thanks for visiting and following my blog; I'm following you now, too.

  6. Hey Teresa! Thanks for always leaving me sweet comments on my blog. Just wanted to show you that I did a tutorial on black hair way back and you might find it useful :)

    For this card, I like how you used your scraps! Way to use your stash.
