The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge

Time for another challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Hello everyone!  
Tanis is our hostess today and she has a really 'useful' challenge idea for us today!

(use scraps on your card/project)

This is a challenge we can ALL join in on because Lord knows we all have mountain of scraps in our crafting areas!!  In fact, I never even made it to my scrap bin ... this was just stuff laying on my craft table that never got put where it belonged!!  Pieces and parts from other projects that I tossed together for today's creation (don't you love when you can do that!!)
Recipe for my card:
Papers:  White cs, Hot Pink cs, Paper Pizazz dp
Stamps:  Sweet Stamps 'Whispy Flowers', Stampendous 'Bubble Day Set'
Ink:  Colorbox 'Berrylicious'
Accessories:  Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, Jo-Ann's dotted organza ribbon, Offray white satin ribbon, Bow-Easy,  EK Success 2-in-1 Rose Bush #54-52007 punch (this thing is so cool!)

Had a little extra time today so here's another creation I 'tossed' together!  I just love rummaging through my scrap bin and pulling together pieces that I think will work well together.  I glanced at a few sketches over on Paper Playful but nothing really caught my eye so I just did my own thing!  I must say I'm quite happy with the outcome.

Recipe for my card:
Papers:  White cs, Paper Pizazz dp, DCWV dp
Stamps:  Rily & Company - Funny Bones 'RWD-080, Great Impressions 'G304'
Ink:  Versafine Onyx, SU River Rock
Accessories: Stampendous diamond dots

A few other challenges:
Can You Digi It #42 - Lift Me Up (Card #2)
Tuesday Throwdown - Pastel Rainbow (Card #2)
Use It Tuesday - Un-Inked Stamps (Card #2)
ABC Challenge - Stamps, Ink, Paper (Card #2)
Craft-Dee BowZ:August Challenge - Anything Goes with homemade bow (Card #1)
The Crafty Bloggers Network - Favorite Things (love using up my scraps)

So now it's your turn to grab that SCRAP BIN and get busy!  I'm sure you'll be amazed at what you can create just from your scraps!  (I know I was!!  LOL!)
Hope to see you at the Sisterhood ... till then and as always . . .
