Karen's Doodles Dutch Challenge - Tuesday 18 May 2010



The challenge over at Karen's Doodles Dutch Challenge this week is "use of little scraps of paper".  I think this challenge must have been made especially for me as my New Year's resolution was to use up the card/paper I'd bought or been given and I have done marvellously well, even if I do say so myself, and have only printed out some backing papers for commissioned cards or Design Team cards.  Again I have gone in the scraps box and used the first piece of paper that I wouldn't have used as I prefer to cover more of the card but it's a scrap so it had to go.  I shall let you into a secret - the green paper I had gutted a piece out weeks ago as I did the punch down the side and decided not to use it and instead of cutting that bit off I kept it and just pinched a piece out of the middle (both pieces of paper have like distressed patterning on them but no matter what I do the camera won't show it up very well).  Thankfully I'd already printed the image out and coloured in with Promarkers and it fitted in to fill the gap.  The card is finished off with some flowers I've had for well over a year, a ticket sentiment from Crafty Ann's Digi Store, some fibres and a flowery ribbon border that I won in some blog candy last year.
