Happy Birthday

File of scraps

after I picked colors, my pile
Hi!  My daughter is having a playdate tomorrow, so I am betting that I will not have a chance to post a project.  So I got an extra one done today.  I used an Artful Delights Sketch.  I love her sketches, I have used them quite a bit. Over at Whimsical Wednesday there is a use your scratches challenge.  I always try and use scraps.  One of the requirements is to show your scrap pile that you use, so here they are.


For my card, i used a Studio G Base, and cut my scraps to 1.5 x 4 and inked the edges using white ink and aqua ink, both studio g.  I put a little adhesive on the back and started winding my twine around the bottom.  I then put them on my base.

I drew the circle with a colored pencil, and colored the image from Digital Delights By Louby Lu, his name is Celebration Charlie.
