I only had a small scrap of that Chatterbox paper left, but thought the colours were so attractive, I couldn't let it go to waste.
I think that using different colour card blanks sometimes adds interest to what you're doing. Here is a card blank that was donated to me by my friend, amongst a load of other odds and ends.
I am using up the random flowers I have left, together with some of these collaged Asian images that I acquired very early on in my crafting days. I like this card - it is quite serene in feel.
For this pink pastel birthday card, I used up lots of scraps - that green frame, the pink paper lace, and the birthday strip at the bottom of the card. I just don't get it when people say they throw away their scraps!
I always find pink and green a soothing and restful colour combination. Nothing soothing about this next card - black and pink in your face combo. Someone bought me some packets of shredded paper some years ago - aargh! I shall be here until kingdom come using them up. The only way I've used them at all successfully is by embedding all the tiny shreds in glossy accents. Who wants a card that sheds. No, thought not.
