Don't Scrap It!

We have been challenged to use up some our scraps for this week's challenge at Less is More. Now I'm quite good about using my scraps - can't afford not to be! I favour Stampin' Up card stock and those who are familiar with SU know that they have colour families. I have a folder where I store all my card stock in plastic pages - one for whole sheets and another the the smaller scraps in each of the colours. It was from one of these folders that I retrieved a piece of Certain Celery.
I also have another plastic wallet full of bits and pieces that I have stamped and not needed or are mistakes or offcuts - take a look

It was from this pile that I extricated this little beauty

This is the fern stamp from Growing Green - did it ages ago with water colour pencils on some hand made water colour paper purchased when I visited Wookey Hole many years ago.
So, when you put these elements together with a little stamping and a scrap of green ribbon - you get this

Hope you like it - Jacqueline xx

  3. This is AMAZING!!! I've been a hoarder of scraps for...ever. I have a really hard time throwing things away, but none of my scraps are as lovely as this is!

  4. This is completely yummy Jacqueline!
    I find designs with a band traversing the card very pleasing and this is particularly so!
    Simply super.
    Thanks so much
