City Crafter Challenge #71

Scrap Happy!


Cheryl is back as Hostess
and has set as the challenge of using only scraps on your project... piece a cake, right! Who doesn't have tons of scraps laying around their craft space.


I first pulled out my Springtime Pixie Kit
and went through all the leftovers. I settled on the gold, black and tan shades, then hunted out a few more pieces in my general scraps bag.


The brad is from a pack of My Minds
Eye Lost and Found that is just down to a couple left. My son-in-law gave me the button.


I found a cut I Am Roses Apple 
Blossom and painted it with Folk Art Metallic Champagne. Added it with two Recollections mini roses from another kit and some punched oak leaves.



The kraft border is from a longer piece I 
had made for another project and the gold strip with the faux stitching is from OA's Modern Homemaker "Flour Sack". The Graphic 45 stickers were from my much depleted Country Farm Stand Kit.
I'm happy these scraps have found a home!

I absolutely adore a good use-your-scraps challenge, and you completely nailed this one, Linda! I think this is beyond stunning. It is, by far, one of my top faves of yours. :)
