The Scraps of Life

Greetings my fellow crafter's. Does this feel like the never ending week or what! I am so glad to say its Friday! After a long day at work I had the joy of coming home to appreciate the better things in life.. Family and crafting.. Who could ask for more. Today I have a 5 by 7 card that I made using the sketch at Stamptacular Sunday. I really like to use sketches as they give me some much needed direction. The best thing about this card however is that it was made using up some fabulous scraps. I love when I'm able to dig in my ever increasing bin of paper pieces and make something like this.  I really enjoyed making this card, hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by.

Paper: from various stacks of DCWV and Recollections Botanical steam punk
Stamp: PS I love you from Stampin Up.
Digi Image: Hannah Lynn image, Forever Rose
Ribbon and button from my stash
Punches: Stampin Up for sentiment, Martha Stewart punch aroung the page for frame

I plan to enter this card into the following challenges:
