Gettin' Much "Scrappier"

Hi, friends.  I know I already entered the weekly challenge at http://www.citycrafter.blogspot.com/ where we were asked to use our scraps to create an entry, and I had used two big scraps on my original entry.  It left me feeling a little guilty for not gettin' REALLY scrappy with this challenge.  So, I am entering again (since I'm allowed).  This card was made with all the little tid-bits of paper on my scrap table.  I stitched them all together with my machine.

I used one of my Papertrey Ink doily die cuts, two Pink Paislee Artisan Elements, some hand-made scrunched seam binding, a rub-on, a snipet of vintage sheet music, and more patterned papers than I can remember.  It is truly a patchwork of scraps.  Now, I feel better.


I'm also entering this little card in the challenge at www.paperplaychallenges.blogspot.com  where entrants were asked to include 3 Embellishments, 2 patterned papers, and some lace..in their creation.  This card has all that. . . . and more.

Thanks for stopping by for a peek,

Karen
