Scrap Apple

This one's just a quick little apple card I made from the many scraps that have accumulated on my desk. I found the polka dot paper first, and used other scraps to round out the card, using yesterday's Sketch Challenge, SC192...though I did change the main image panel to a circle instead of a rectangle.

I stamped the image in Old Olive, then colored it in with Prismacolors. Then I punched it out with my pink circle punch, and punched out a Pumpkin Pie scalloped circle with my purple punch. I folded a piece of Whisper White to make the base (the only non-scrap on this card), then a panel of Bayou Blue, then my two dp pieces, with some Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon across the seam. The scalloped circle is on foam tape for some dimension.

Then, it looked a litle naked...so I added the glittery 'hello' letters that I found yesterday in the clearance bin a Target, and to tie in the sparkle, added Stickles to each scallop and to the polka dots on the background paper.

And now I've got a question for you: How do you store your scraps, and does it work for you? Do you remember to use them?

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to go Hip Hop in the Unity forum at 10am CST (8am PST) today!

you've asked the wrong gal about storage...I usually just throw the scraps with other pieces of cardstock/dsp of the same kind in a large 13x13 zip top bag. If I need to use that specific paper, I am sure to use the scraps first if it is big enough. For lone scraps, without anything matching, I put in a separate bag and will use those up when I am completing swaps or another project.

Back to your card, I LOVE the stickles in the background! That what the little dots are right? I could be wrong ;)
