Scalloped snippets

For once, I don't feel sad about having used the very last scraps of several papers for this card. Why? Because they were part of a magazine freebie, and the mag also included a link to download the paper designs from their site, so I can print more any time I want to.

I punched lots and lots of circles from the snippets, then arranged them over a strip of card cut to the width of my base card by slightly less than the depth I wanted to cover (this was to allow me to trip the top and edges, which would have been tricky done directly on the card).  Then I stuck it to the card and used a black glitter peel-off border to edge it. I finished off with a stamped sentiment and a scattering of gems.

I am sharing this with

Oh Jane - you clever sausage! I love this card - wonderful use of snippets, which is what I always look for! And I adore your sentiment stamp - it's very stylish.

Dudley sends a sleepy woof to his Auntie Jane - he's under my desk right now with his head lightly resting on one of my feet. Ha, until he smells cooking of course! Len is on kitchen duty tonight so it's pizza. Mitt baked beans!? Weird but it does add some moisture to the pizza as a side - and salad is really asking too much of my big boy when he already does so much here.

What a wonderful way to use up some of your scrap pieces. And they are set off beautifully with the upper part of the card. Thank you for joining in at CHNC with Anything Goes Challenge and optional twist of Use some patterned paper. Apologies for the late comment.
