Simple card

Good morning everyone.

I'm just not in the mood for colouring this morning, which is strange as I usually find it so therapeutic. Instead I have done a little bit of tidying and sorting in my craft room and I decided that I should start using up some of my scraps of paper.

I chose a very simple layout to use the scraps.

This is what I used:-

CS: card base from Rymans
DP: DCWV spring
Flower: Papermania
Sentiment: Papertrey Ink from "Everyday Button Bits"
Ink: Brilliance "Poppy"
Ribbon: Anita's

Enjoy your day.

Hi Clare,
Great card, It's good to use scrap's and this will make one of those quick card's you some time's need when your caught short, I know I should really just sit down with all my scrap's and make some, if you got something like that from the shop's, you would pay a small fortune Clare, this is very expensive looking.
I have been cleaning Mr Stinky the Fish today, it's taken me over an hour to do. I have even lite the log burner, It's so wet and cold here, all I am doing now is blog hopping, must tear myself away or I won't get dinner ready.lol
Have a great day

Hi Clare, what a great idea to use up your bits. This is beautiful. There should be a challenge blog..it could be called 'scrap happy'!

Kat said...

Great idea Clare and it is a very elegant card. If I used up my scraps I think it would take a very long time. I have far too much DP....but I suspect I am not alone LOL!

Lovely elegant card Clare.
Could do with a bit of scrap using up myself and tidying craft room, tho I did manage a bit of that yesterday- still lots more to go....
Hope all OK with you, sorry not been about much lately - not enough hours in the day (or too many spent on facebook)

Clare this is a beautiful card, I have been musing over in my mind, to set up something so we crafters can swap Scraps, not sure how it would work, but I have my thinking cap on....Hugs Avril xxx
