Scrappy Do!!

It’s time for a new challenge over at Kitty Bee’s Aloha Friday!  Our theme for this challenge is “Scraps” – we want to see at least three different scraps used in your project.  Our sponsor was Doodle Garden – the first time I’ve used one of their images, but definitely not the last; they’re so cute and very easy to work with!

On to my card then….  I chose to use Three Cheers for my project – I was looking for an image that would be ideal for paper piecing as I find this is the easiest way to use up the small odds and ends of papers that I can’t bear to throw away!  As soon as I saw this cute little girl, I could see her dress paper pieced, along with a matching bow….not to mention the flag!!

I coloured the image with Pro-Markers, then “dressed” her with the dress and bow that I had cut from a scrap of patterned paper from the Hip Hip Hooray Stack by American Crafts – in fact, all the patterned papers on the card are from the same stack, which is my absolute favourite because of the bright, juicy summer colours.  I also used scraps for the flowery stripes across the background, the flag and the sentiment.

I based the layout on the current sketch and twist challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. I chose to use the middle row (sentiment, designer paper, flower).  The frame and stripes have been popped up on 3D pads to create a little distance between the patterned background and the flowery stripes – might have caused a few migraines otherwise 😉 Unfortunately, I’ve just realised that our challenge goes live after the closing date, so I won’t be able to enter 😦  Never mind, I’m sure I’ll find a couple of other challenges to link up to!!
