Tuesday Throwdown - Use your scraps!


I can't believe that next week is the last week of the summer holiday for the children.  It feels like it's gone so quickly!

It's time for a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and before I share my card - I'd just like to tell you all that we are having a design team call - for more information click here.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Digital Delights:

... and the challenge is to Use Your Scraps - you know all those bits of paper and card you've put aside to use one day! I keep all of mine in a folder organised by colour (tragic!) but I never think to look in it - I always use a new piece.

So I had a look through and found some gold card I used at Christmas and some lovely papers I made a wedding card with last May!  I also looked through my envelope of printed images to see if I had anything and found this cake.

So here's my card:

This card is for my husband's uncle who is getting married next week!

I think I need to use my paper and card scraps more often, as I always manage to convince myself I need some new stuff for a card - but all of this was from my drawer and as I said earlier some of it had been lurking around for a year!

Why not have a look through your scraps - see what you've got.  It would be lovely if you could join us for our challenge.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Through the purple haze - Bingo (Bottom Line - flowers, pearls, sentiment)
Loves Rubber Stamps - Round or Square
Created with Love - Something Sweet
Papertake Weekly - Flower Power
Sweet Stamps - Anything Goes
City Crafts - 1,2,3 (1 Stamp, 2 papers, 3 embellishments/flowers)
Craft Your Passion - Summer Flowers
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Paper Playtime - Use Pearls
Crafting Musketeers - Sketch

Thanks for looking!
