365 Cards: Just The Scraps

Today at 365 Cards the challenge is to use ONLY scraps. Don't cut into anything new.  Oy! is this challenge for me! I have a HUGE box of scraps. I have scraps on shelves, scraps in drawers. Scraps would come out of my ears if I would let them! So I sat down and whipped this baby up.

The paper scraps are from K&Co. Berry Sweet line. I used the fresh large pages for this Star Book I made awhile back, but have a few small bits left. I love these papers. It was hard to cut into them at first, but now I am so glad I did. Everything they touch looks cute!That one little scalloped green piece on the edge is also from K&Co, but an Amy Butler line. The pink ribbon is a scrap from the Star Book too. The stickers are left over from a scrap pack of yesteryear and the little yellow ribbon bit is a remnant from the ribbon outlet. Even the card base is a scrap. I had tried a card idea and HATED it, so I scraped the base and it has been sitting ever since. Luckily its nothing some nice paper can't cover up. 
The only thing on here that isn't a scrap is this felt flower. It's an embellishment from the Berry Sweet line as well. I only have a few left and I am savoring them. This is such a great challenge for any paper crafter as I am sure you all have scraps laying around. Head on over to 365 Cards to link up your creation. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us!!
