Using scraps

Since I do a lot of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cards, and use 6x6 paper pads I have some strips left over and I decided to use some of those strips to make a card.

I have done inking on all the strips before adding them to the card base.  All the scraps are from the same paper pack.

My mind's eye -- the sweetest thing
Technique Tuesday -- Happy Birthday stamp set
Craft a roo -- clear rhinestones
Paper doily cut in half
Offray ribbon
Impression Obsessions -- spiral flowers
Foof-a-la -- buttons

It is a cold day here so we are heading to the gym for a work out.
Hope you all enjoy a great weekend,
Thanks so much for taking the time out to stop by,

What a cute paper combo and a great way to use up scraps! I like how you sponged the edges to set them apart. Really adds a lot of interest to it. Super cute border you made, too!
