Paper Dolls Scrap Challenge


Today I am posting my "scraps" challenge card.  So, this ended up being waaaaaay harder than I thought it should have been- especially considering I trashed my first one and had to get *new* scraps, lol!
The scraps on this card were the Embellishments cuts (I stamped the coordinating image in versamark), the Take Three cut and Just the Ticket cut that I sewed together and cut off the edges (and used button brads on).  Finally, the Library Pocket die cut was also a scrap.  I added that scrap of ribbon too.  The rest were *new* to finish off the card.  I stamped image on the Library Card is the topiary button plant from Everyday Button Bits with the sentiment "from me to you".

Enjoy!
