You're in my Prayers

Hi guys. I'm trying to get some of my scraps cleaned up. But how to go about making nice looking cards with scraps? It's always a challenge for me! Where do you go to for ideas and inspiration? I head to Pinterest -- it's a limitless supply of inspiration! Perfect to get the mojo flowing...

I found this great card sketch...and set out to use a bit of everything...
  • designer paper scraps
  • Cuttlebug embossed cardstock scraps
  • ribbon
  • bling
  • die cuts
  • & of course stamps
 First, I stamped a butterfly image with light gold ink. Then I stamped my sentiment with black ink. I layered the circle onto a purple die cut from my stash.



Then I layered all the cardstock, designer paper and added a bright yellow ribbon between the two different papers to kind of create a separation. Finally, I adhered my die cut with some foam stickers so it has a bit of dimension.


 ...and finished off with some black bling. :)


Not bad for a cleaning-up-scraps card!!! Too bad I haven't even made a dent in my scraps pile though! :p




supplies used:
Scalloped Edge Circle Spellbinder die
"Fanciful Butterflies" by Sweet Stamps 
Clear Stamp Sentiment
"Victorian" Cuttlebug Folder
various sizes black bling
ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbons
