Just a note

When I saw the sketch for Card Patterns 148 I just knew it would be a good one for using up scraps (I never get to the end of that resolution - lol!):


I've used snippets of various papers (now I know that it is worth keeping those pieces that are under 2 inches wide!), some of which are DCWV, inked the Donna Dewberry all night media stamp with memento tuxedo black and coloured lightly with copics - this and the surrounding paper were cut with nesties. Just the addition of the lace and stitched ribbon and the card was done.

  2. Terrific Hazel! Lovely colours and super use of snippets - maybe I should have a competition to see who keeps the smallest sized snippets ?:) I know I hate throwing even the tiniest scrap away at times. Di xx
