Happy Day - Playing with Scraps

I was inspired by a very sweet and talented fellow card maker, Lisa, to use up some of my scraps, after seeing one of her adorable cards!

I just so happened to have the same bitty scraps sitting around and thought it would be fun to give them a whirl! So today's card is an eclectic mix of little odds-and-ends.  

To start this card, I used a lovely Prima stamp called Offset Dots to stamp the background in a soft shade of blue, French Ultramarine from Ranger Archival Ink.

On the side of the card, I added a wispy pink ribbon, with a Confetti Garland die-cut from Papertrey Ink.

To embelish the garland, I used buttons, heart stamps from Love Lives Here, and bitty confetti hearts from Neat and Tangled Little Bits dies.

I added a large focal point at the top of the card, by layering all the little bits and pieces I had scattered about my scrap bin. Some of the pieces feature vintage flowers and sweet images, while others are leftovers from previous stamped projects. 

Since I had so many of these little bits, I thought I'd use them all up to create a cascading look to the card. 

For the stamped pieces, I used colors of Spring Moss, Raspberry Fizz, Harvest Gold and Aqua Mist ink from PTI.

I scattered a few little stars and sequins about the card, and added a few mis-matched pieces together for a sweet sentiment.

It's always a pleasure cleaning out scap bin. Thanks, Lisa, for the inspiration :) And thank you all for visiting!
