Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge-Scraps

Hi everyone and welcome to this weeks Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge over at Mark's Finest Papers. The challenge this week is to use your scraps. I know I don't look like I have a lot of scraps here but let me explain.

My Mark's Finest Papers Cardinals in Winter is actually a scrap from something I intended to do but didn't. I was going to decorate a jar with them and didn't. So I decided to make this card with them. This image is layered. I cut a Cardinal out of one of the images and layered it on top for dimension. The Poinsettia is a result of playing with my new die set. I was trying to decide how to layer and enhance the Poinsettia and these were laying on my craft table. I decided to marry these with the cardinals. The gold leaves are from leftovers from something else I was working on.The Products used on the card:
Mark's Finest Papers-Cardinals in Winter
Spellbinders: Layered Poinsettia, Parisian Accents, Labels 4
Ribbon, Recollection Gold Dots, Gold Stickles, Gold Leaves, Gold Martha Stewart Micro Beads

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will be able to join us in our challenge. Have a great weekend!

You made those poinsettias?? Wow! They look like they came already made. They are amazing, and they look terrific with the cardinal label. This should be on a table in your home, as a decoration!
