I just wanted to share the next card in my 'Use it Up' series. Before I had my back surgery I made a goal for myself to use up the bits in my scraps box. After making 4 cards already, I don't think this is going to happen anytime soon, but I can at least say that more is coming out of it than going in!
Here is the card...
You might recognize this little chef from the Simply B Stamps range. She is colored in flex markers as is my usual. The photo doesn't show it well, but the backing paper or background layer is a light green marble. This didn't come out of my scraps box, but it did come from a pack of Glitter Girls paper that I have had over a year. I used some smaller scraps to make the woven panel and some larger scraps for the yellow matted polka dot layer panels.
Lastly, the sentiment came from the Crafter's Companion 'Little Treasures' embellishment set, which I have also had for over a year.
I am quite pleased with the way it turned out. I find it a fun challenge to look at the scraps and try to come up with ways to use them. It gives me the excuse to try combinations and layouts that I might not otherwise.
Anyway, I shall leave it here for now. I hope you like the card. by the way, don't forget to check out the current challenges at Just Inspirational Challenges and Crafty Boots Challenges. It is so lovely to see what you all come up with.
Take care and I hope you can come back to visit soon.
