City Crafter Challenge

Hello! Happy Tuesday! 
... Time for a "Scrap Happy" challenge at City Crafter ... chosen for us this week by the very talented Cheryl who asks that we use Only Scraps for our cards or projects and if you are anything like me ... you will have heaps of scraps!! I keep every little thing.
I love this challenge ... and know that I could have made a whole lots of cards from my scraps ... which I intend to do as soon as time permits ... 


At first I pulled together scraps of the same tone ...
and then I decided to add some green in there too ... and can you see the little charm ... well I actually found this on the floor of a car park ... abandoned and unwanted ... but of course I knew I could use it 


You know this card came together so very quickly and I like it better than some of the cards I have agonised and taken hours over ... I must do this more often ... maybe I'll do another now... what about you? Are you ready to get Scrap Happy with us at CCCB? I hope so ... if you need inspiration, check out the work from the rest of the DT and our talented GD this week Tante Kathe ... and there is a super prize .. also from our lovely Cheryl  ... So I hope to "see" you there ...

Have a lovely day

~ Ros ~

This is a lovely combo of neutrals and a splah of green. Paired up with lace and that adorable charm that you found :) The charm and bow paired on top of that damask patterned paper is my favorite part :).
Your card is gorgeous; classic and so elegant!!
Have a lovely day...XXXXXX

What a fun card, Ros! I love the green you added and the dotted piece, I recognize. I could make a lot of cards with the scraps I have too. Actually scraps would be perfect for Christmas tags and cards. Have a wonderful evening.

So pretty Ros! Love your "scrappy" card! That bow is stunning and I love the lace trim! I hoard my scraps because you never know when you may need that one little snippet right? :) LOL

Love the fresh green color on this beautiful scrap card - I know what you mean about a card coming together quickly and just as nice as others you took so long over - familiar!

This is beautiful Ros! I love how you expressed your love for it and how it wins your heart over ones that require hours of labor! Aren't those the ones that make you go yeah! Lol! :-) Amy
