For the Whimsical Wednesday challenge we were supposed to use scraps to make a card. I am proud to say that I used nothing but scraps. (minus the gel pen, buttons, twine, and stamp) I learned how to do this type of card a long time ago and I can't remember who from. But who knew that all of this could turn into...
...This! Isn't it cute?! I used the majority of the scraps on the bottom half. I was thinking "area rug".

my pink stamper challenge

My pink stamper is doing a DT challenge for the next term! We had to do something with orange, green, brown, and turquoise.  I've never done that color combination so it was a challenge for me. So I stepped out of my color combo comfort zone and tried my best. I'm really happy with the results! What do you think?
How I did it:
base: 5 1/2x 4 1/2
cream 1st layer: 5 1/4 x 4 1/4
orange layer: 5 x4
cut: country life: 4 1/4 in
turquoise ribbon
scrapabilities brad
cinnamon  color inking
sukura white gel pen
calligraphy pen for sentament
1st layer: 5 1/4x 4 1/4
2nd layer:4 x 3 3/4
glues: mono, zip two way glue pen, and foam squares
