Scrappy Birthday

It has been a few days since I posted. I did make a sympathy card that I forgot to post but other than that I have been trying, once again, to re-organize my room. Why is it that you end up with a bigger mess than you started with. LOL.


This card came about  as I was throwing away the scraps from the sympathy card. I has the two circles with the flowers cut out left from the card I made. As I was about to throw them away I looked at them again and decided I could use them. I put them back in the Spellbinders dies, a circle and a rose creations die and embossed them. I then cut and embossed three flowers from a scrap. To fix the flowers in the negative part of the circle I used tape on the back and then put the flowers in the space. The sentiment is stamped on a Spellbinders tag and the circles, tag and flower are attached with dimensional tape. The patterned paper on the sides are just narrow strips which is all I had left of that paper so it truly is a Scrappy Birthday card!

Very nicely done, Jennie. And I know just what you mean, I'm trying to do house cleaning, and as I am tearing things apart, so I can declutter and organize...things look worse not better. I keep hoping I get somewhere because I want to get back to card making again.

Great job using your scraps Jennie, I really hate to throw out pretty paper too.
Cheers,
