That's what today's limited supplies challenge on SCS is all about - using leftovers to make a card. I have lots of scraps on my table, but it was hard to find things that worked together. The flower image was already stamped and punched, as was the oval layer behind it, so I decided to design my card around that. The next two layers of blue and white were also on the table, but had to be trimmed down a bit. I ran the white through my cuttlebug with the textile embossing folder and then brayered ballet blue ink over the raised embossing. I added a layer of brilliant blue. The small flowers were punched from another scrap and blue eyelets were added to the centers. The ribbon pieces were cut from a larger piece. All the holes were punched with my crop-a-dile. For the background, I pulled out a new stamp called stitched, which added a bit of color, but isn't overwhelming. The oval layers are popped up.

stamps: Petal Prints, Stitched (SU)
ink: ballet blue, brilliant blue, always artichoke
paper, whisper white, brilliant blue, ballet blue
other: brayer, cuttlebug, textile embossing folder, sponge, crop-a-dile, brilliant blue eyelets, flower punch (EK Success), giga & mega scallop oval punches (Marvy Uchida), mounting tape

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
