Using up those scraps....

I'm sure most people reading this are probably the same as me when it comes to throwing away those little scraps of pretty papers - I just have to keep them! Occasionally I feel the need to try and use them and for these scraps I had left over from Authentique's Blissful 6x6 papers I decided to make a patchwork effect background for my card. I cut a circle from scrap paper, covered it in glue and then stuck my scraps on randomly (making sure they were all cut with right-angled corners so they lined up) When I had covered the entire circle I turned it over and trimmed back the overhanging edges, and then added some faux zig-zag stitching with a black fine line pen.

I made some flowers to embellish the card using plain card spritzed with glimmer mists layered with more of the paper scraps.

Thanks for stopping by.
