Scraps!

Time to use up those scraps and anything that you've had forever! This week at Isabella's challenge we have been challenged to use small pieces of designer paper (no bigger than 3"x 3") , use embellies from your stash (or make your own) but nothing new on this card.  Hmmmmmmm. This card went through several transformations, just wasn't happy with it!  The image I had picked out and coloured just didn't look right so I had to start again .  Anyway, finally  settled on this. The paper is bits of SU , I've stitched it to SU cardstock, random flowers, liquid pearls, brads from my stash, lace I've had forever, and the lovely "Sunday Apron" and "Time to bake" images from Isabella's Sketchbook. I've coloured with copics, stickled all over, aged with vintage photo distress ink and here it is!

I loved this card from the moment I saw it and I'm still drooling, Viv! Red is my favorite color and your colors and DP patterns are terrific. Perfect combo of images too. Frustrating or not, it is definitely worth the effort!

Hope you are having a great week.

Hugs,
Linda
