Shopping Our Stash #101

Good morning, friends!  It's Tuesday and that means another great challenge at Shopping Our Stash.  This week our theme is "Scrap Attack".  We want to see you dive into you scrap pile (we know you all have them!) and use only scraps on your card this week.  No cutting into new paper (except for your card base).

I certainly have a vast supply of scraps so I went digging and this is what I came up with:
 Now I promise that every bit of paper in this card came from my scraps.  I have a large bag with my scraps that are less than 3" in either direction.  Anything over 3" and under 6"x6" in each direction go in a box sorted by color or pattern.  When I cut into a full sheet of card stock or DP I always cut the leftovers down to 6x6 (or about that) and file it in my box.  So, all the mats in this card were in that box, I didn't have to cut any of them.  The small squares were from a few scraps that I cut down to fit.  I inked the edges for a more vintage look.  I used paper and porcelain floors as well as seam binding and pearls for my embellishments.  The die cut was also in my scrap bag I simply added the small oval sentiment to it.
 On the inside I copied the sketch from the front and used more mats from my box.
I'm not sure what I will use this card for, but the DP is one of my favs  :)

So, there you have it.  Time for you to dive into your stash and get busy making a "scrappy" card to share with us!

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,
