This card was inspired from Maile Belles' card shown on page 24. What a great layout!! So what scraps did I use?? Well, all the paper on this card (with the exception of the base) is from Papertrey Ink packaging!!! That's right. I tend to keep the bands that go around the stamp sets when they arrive. I realized as I dug through my scraps that I had 4 differnt colors of the same pattern so I wanted to use them together. I cut them to be all the same size and popped them up on the card. Then I added some black organdy ribbon. Then, see that flower ... more of the same recycled PTI packaging!! Yup, I punched out the starburst (Martha Stewart) and then cut slits to create petals. A small circle of Sweet Blush cardstock (Papertrey Ink) with the simple sentiment completes the card!!!
I am having so much fun using up my scraps!! Hope you are having as much fun seeing what I created.
