As you might be able to tell from the title, the prompt for this week was to use leftovers (aren't these ladies clever with their prompts!). Well, there is no shortage of leftovers here in the Stamp Sauna (which the Stamp Castle has been renamed for the duration of the summer or until I get HWNSNBP to commit to an air-conditioner!).
I dug through my scrap box hoping to find something that had been punched, stamped, colored, or whatever, and boy did I get lucky. I found something that had been stamped, colored AND punched. So then I dug through the pile of Christmas dsp that I have accumulated and came up with a scrap that I punched my squares out of. Put them onto the red scallop die cut background, and put that on a base of Soft Suede cs. The ornament blended in too much just on top of the squares, so I trimmed down a paper doily to put behind it.
Then I checked the ribbon scrap jar that I have and found what I needed there for the bow and the hanger. The last touch was the little cardinal. I had some of them stamped on a strip of white cs so I cut one of them out to add to this card.
Fun challenge! I'm going over now to see how much fun everyone else had with this - you can check for yourself by clicking here.
