Retro Sunflower

Last weekend I had so much fun using up scraps from my Papertrey Ink scrap pile. With the exception of the card base, the papers on this card are all scraps! And see there, I've used that stamp set Text Boxed (Papertrey Ink) again! This time, I inked up this sunflower with Orange Zest ink (Papertrey Ink) and stamped it onto some Lemon Tart paper (Papertrey Ink). I added a Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!)dotted center and sentiment and used a large brad (Dollar Store) in the center of the flower for some dimension. My favorite part of the card is the three strips of cardstock - all scraps that I've kept from other projects (I never throw anything away! because I always can use them, even the smallest strips!). The colors are from top to bottom - Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise, and Orange Zest (all Papertrey Ink). A little sponging around the main Kraft panel (also a piece of scrap - there was some printing on the other side) and dimensionals for the focal image and voila a Clean and Simple card!! I love that it looks so retro!! Donelda

Ever since you and I traded scrap table scraps, I don't throw away those strips from my border punches anymore. I also hang onto bits of paper more often now, I used to send them to DD's craft table.
