Happy Birthday


After coloring in this watering can with the flowers the actual card took about 5 minutes. I used WMS stamps for the happy birthday in yellow, the rest was scrap papers, even the card base and ribbon were scraps sitting there on my craft counter right next to the paper trimmer. The watering can was printed out on GP white and I trimmed it to have one long piece on the bottom, got out Marfa's border punch. Used two holes that were punched from purple scraps for the 'brads'. It did take me a moment to turn two embosslits through the cuttlebug, the butterfly and the stem. Eeeezzeeeee!!
Thanks for coming by!

Hi Joanne, great "use 'em up" card! We should all make the effort to use up our scraps, especially when we could be making lovely cards like this one.
Thanks for playing along at Cowgirl's Sunday Stampen Challenge
