This week at Craft Your Passion we are issuing the challenge to "Use your scraps"... I have a TON of scraps. I don't know why I am not better at using them - they just get color sorted and stored and not used as often as I should. So this week I am vowing to use them in all the cards I make! (Someone hold me to that, okay?)
I used this cute image from Stitchy Bear for this card made with my scraps. I also found some clay embellishments that were actually bought in the miniature's section at my craft store... They seemed to be a great match to compliment the image. I used an embossing folder on some white core paper, then sanded it to have the texture pop off the paper. All of the edges were roughed up a little with the sanding block as well. The final touch was a piece of braided leather rope.
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Make it Monday - Linky party
Moving Along With the Times - Seeing stars
One Stitch at a Time - Use a digi
Pin and Tack - Anything goes
Card Crafter's Circle - Texture
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything goes
Little Red Wagon - Texturize it
I have a terrible confession - I totally blew it last week and my post for the CYP #136 - it didn't go up as scheduled and I didn't catch it. So, I wanted to share with you my card for last weeks challenge. It kinda goes with this other card in that they both have that western theme to them... My apologies to our great sponsor last week, Bugaboo, for not getting this out there last week.
Thanks for stopping by - enjoy your holiday week for all of my USA friends, and have a great week for all of the rest of you!!!!
