Quick card from scraps

You know how I can't stand to give up paper! This card is from my scrap bin. It's an addiction. Whatever doesn't get sucked up into a scrapbook ends up in the drawers, seperated by color. Paper is an obsession.

Items used: Bazzil cardstock, SU! Always stamp, black ink, Ribbon from the $1 bin @ Micheals, prima flower and brads. For once there is a project I didn't rub ink on the edges of. lol!

If you wouldn't have told me I never would have thought that this was made with scraps! Great job.

This is fabulous! I'm with you I have paper, paper scraps and more paper. I've been thinking of posting a weekly challenge on my blog called Sunday's scraps -basically the idea is to make a project with scraps each week. If I do I hope you'll play along.

Your card is very very pretty - love it at first sight! I am honestly the same way with pattern paper and I feel so justified for keeping all the scraps when I can use a piece or two to make a card...but I love paper! TFS
