Another Scrappy Design

My regular followers know that I have been trying to incorporate as many paper scraps as possible into my recent designs.

I am discovering that letting my scraps guide my design is very liberating and fun. Some pieces (like the quilt on the card below) I make ahead when I feel like doing fussy work. I keep these handy for making quick cards that don't look quick.

Today's design uses an inchie 'quilt', a tag that has been in my stash for ages, a die cut sentiment I have also had for a long time, a few other patterned paper scraps and a small piece of lacy ribbon.

Here are the sentiments, in case you have not picked them up before.



Thanks for stopping by. Lots more scrappy designs to come.

Blessings on your weekend,

Teresa, Glad you're joining us at Simply Create Too for our Mother's Day/Female Challenge. Your princess birthday card is just right for our challenge. I love using my scraps too--but have you found that the more you use, the bigger your pile of scraps get???? Seems that's how mine get!!!
