I Challenge You - Scraps

My friend picked the challenge for this week, and it was....."Use your scraps in making your cards."As I understood any leftover scraps were fair game.  Since I recently cleaned out my bin of images/sentiments/flowers that never made it onto projects I didn't have a lot to use in that area.  BUT....I have a pretty big scrap bin (of leftover bits of paper), so I decided to go that route in making my cards.  As you will notice, once I got started I couldn't quit.  I had so much fun making up these "room" cards from the images over at Birds Cards. 
  • All the paper on these cards came out of my scrap bin
  • The flowers are from a scrap pile (from borders punched with the MS Daisy Dot border punch)
  • Images:
  • MS Scoring Board (used to make the lines on the wall and the floor)
  • Crayola markers (used on the walls -- to make the stripes and to highlight chairs)
  • Small square punch (used to make the photo corners)
  • Black Bic Marker (used to color the bottom of the chair and lamp)
  • Fleur de lis border punch (EK Success)
Now go here and see the projects my friend created from here scraps.

What gorgeous cards!!

I especially love the way you added ribbon to a sentiment to make it look like a hanging picture, very clever!
The last card where you used 2 chairs is very cute indeed :)
