A QUICK CARD TO SHARE - USING SCRAPS!

Hi all! Well, it is Sunday and my last day on the houseboat - we come home tomorrow! I am sure I have tons of pics and stories to share, so make sure you pop in tomorrow as my post will be later in the day after we get back and get settled! This card was made out of scraps I had left from my Black Market Society paper - I did not want any of it to go to waste! I used the sentiment from my Fresh Cuts stamp set, which I then punched out with my Small Oval Punch and then framed with a piece of Silver Hodgepodge Hardware. I also added three silver brads down the side. The centers of my flowers (cut out from the dp) are Ice Rhinestone Square brads, and then I popped the flowers up on dimensionals. The ribbon is Chocolate Chip narrow grosgrain ribbon, which to I added a matching button. The smaller flowers are mounted on a piece of Close to Cocoa card stock that has been punched out with my Large Oval punch. The flowers have small pearls adhered to their centers. I think it came out pretty well, and the best part is, the card is made completely from scraps I had! So, make sure you leave a comment to be entered in to the drawing for a Coconut gift certificate - you don't want to miss out! So, until tomorrow!!
