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.
