Friday blog project - use those scraps

Marianne here with you today to show you how to create a colourful card using those scraps of paper which usually end up in the bin. I now keep a pile of the strips I think would be useful on my desk to use as a background. 

You will need

Shaped card blank
Paper strips
Co-ordinating flowers

1 Stamp the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink or use the silhouette die cut.

2 Play around with the paper strips until you are happy with the arrangement. Don't cover the whole card blank and make the edges at different heights and widths. Attach to card blank and trim any overhanging pieces to shape of card blank.

3 Attach image.

4 Layer up flowers and attach to card and add pearls.
