Love - Use your Scraps challenge

Posted by PicasaLove - by Amy
Amy sent the following description: Recently my husband and I were invited to a wedding, so of course that meant I needed a card! I pulled this patterned paper out of my stash. It was already cut to a 6x12 size. I folded it in half and I had the base of my card. Next I found some cream and these black glitter scraps and punched shapes out of them. I knew I wanted to add ribbon soI raided my ribbon scrap jar (I have two actually) and found this sheer black ribbon. I was then able to find some cream and black prima flowers and add jewels and pearls to the centers of them. Next, I went through my letter stickers looking for pink letters that I could spell the word "love" with. These pink glitter letters coordinated perfect with the glitter cardstock and gave the card a more feminine touch.

    Great use of scraps - and not just the paper kind.
