Using Scraps 4 - Flowers and Buttons

Yes, I am still using up scraps and being inpsired by the Sept./Oct. issue f Paper Crafts magazing.

This card is based on a tiny one on page 20 .. it is in the top row in the middle.  See it??  I LOVED those trees made out of that great checkered paper.  Well, in my scrap bin I have a ton of gingham paper in various colors so I decided to go with that!!   I punched out a bunch of the flowers (Martha Stewart) and then added the centers (colored metallic half pearls with my black Copic marker).  Added the leaves and sentiment. 

SEe that pale purple background.  That has been in my scrap bin for many many years!! It is a technique where you wrinkle tissue paper and glue it or iron it to a piece of cardstock (I kinda forget it's been so long!).  Finally used it up.  I drew the lines with my Prismacolor markers and a ruler. 

Wow, my scrap stash is getting a bit smaller!!  but I still have more cards to share using scraps and being inspired by the magazine!  come back tomorrow for some interesting scraps!
