WW Use Those Scraps!




 Here's a picture of the scraps I used!
 Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Whimsical Wednesdays! This week the challenge is to USE UP THOSE SCRAPS!
For my card I cut the ladybug from Create A Critter at 3.5inches. I used my white gel pen and black pen to do the stitching and lines. I added chalk to her cheeks and added some "freckles". I stamped the sentiment and punched out the mat and frame with my Fiskars punches. To finish I added the ribbon and mounted the ladybug on pop dots. I hope you all enjoyed my card and will play along this week! I can't wait to see what YOU will create with your scraps!
