HIMCR #37 - Super Scraps Saturday!

Happy Saturday!!

The challenge this week, the 2nd week of the month, is SUPER SCRAPS SATURDAY!  So dig out those scraps and create any paper project.  You have until Friday, March 16th to link up your creation for this challenge and to get entered into the monthly drawing (still not pictured and posted, so sorry!).  When uploading to online galleries please use code HIMCR37.

Here's what I came up with:

I must admit here, that sometimes using scraps can be a real challenge for me!  I'm not completely satisfied with this card but it's about using those pieces of paper, cardstock, cut images, ribbon, etc. that are just being stored in a bin.  And that part I'm happy with!

These pieces cut from Elegant Edges cartridge were all in my scrap bin.  I have no idea the size!
I put them together and it fit a sentiment perfectly I really wanted to use and then I proceeded to force it to work for a card.
That was my first problem!!

Card Base: SU Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft) 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:   SU Apricot Appeal 4 1/8" X 5 3/8", DCWV the Fall Stack 4" X 5 1/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper:  Garden Green  
Ink:  Chocolate Chip
Stamps:  Verve 'Beautiful You'
Accessories:  Cuttlebug &Textile embossing folder, Cricut & Elegant Edges,  silk flowers, rhinestone brad, buttons
