Another Just Rite Challenge

Finished card
My scraps, I think I did pretty good using them up. What do you think?
The challenge over at Just Rite ( Get Scrappy) is to used the scraps on your work area. I have plenty of those and I tend to keep every piece especially the printed ones so this was a challenge I needed to take on. I had done a quilt card last year and thought this would be a fun way to use up these scraps also. I used my spellbinders Hexagon die's from Spellbinders.I cut several different pieces of my printed papers and played around with back grounds and came up with this pretty blue print. I arranged them to fit on a square piece of paper that was cut to fit on a Accucut card die I have that has a scallop on the bottom. Once I had them on the card I used a fine tip Prisma marker  in brown to add faux stitches around each one,( It went faster then you think) I edged the blue with Momento's Potter's clay ink. I stamped the saying ( Birthday centers) with this ink as well and then edged the die cut saying with a sponge and Potters clay ink.This was set on top of the die cut filigree which I had a pretty plaid ribbon in a yummy butterscotch color to pull the whole thing together.To finish it off I put a scrap of the rusty print paper under the scallop edge at the bottom of the card.
  I really like how it turned out and better yet I got to use some of those small scraps I had piling up on my work area.This is a card that really has a warm hug kind of feel to it.
Have a great day.

Hi Donna
I just adore the colours on this card, all cosy and warm.
You have given me some ideas for using a tiny portion of my scrap box.

Your card makes me think of a warm cozy quilt and since our weather finally cooled off, it's very inviting!
