enough is enough (use up scraps)

May have mentioned that my ironing board doubles as my creation station.  May also have mentioned that I don't like doing housework.  Well, there was enough ironing calling my name that I had to up and do it.  I'd already moved these scraps from left to right and back again multiple times, thinking "I can do something with these".  So enough is enough.  I did something.

Inspiration came in the form of this birdhouse and the fact that my snowbird parents are on their way back home so I wanted to make them a welcome home card.  I just forced myself to use as many scraps as possible.  Kind of a crazy result, but I likey.

You may recognize some of the scraps from here (birdhouse), here (bird), here (butterfly), here (flowers) or here (branch).  Put all the scraps onto a piece of blue cardstock which I stamped haphazardly with the hexagon BG from my new Clear and Simple stamps I won at Moxie Fab.  Just picked them up (had to go to the customs office) and wanted to try them out.  The CS and stamp were the only non-scrap things I used.  Even the card base is a cheapo card covered with packing paper.  It was a part of a complete set that I picked up super cheap just for the cool woodgrain paper that was also in it.  Gotta love Aldi.

Entering the Flowers challenge at Lily Pad Cards cuz my card "sports a couple flowers".

Ant thanks to Cath at Moxie Fab for the Paper Scraps Challenge.  Cuz enough is enough.

What a fun collage design, I love that it's made from scraps! Such an artful arrangement, the tiny flowers are really sweet. Thanks for sharing this with us at Lily Pad Cards.
