SOS Challenge #6 - Scrap Attack

I love that I'm a part of the design team with the talented girls over at SOS (Shopping our Stash) Challenge Blog.  I'm amazed at all the inspiration I get from seeing what everyone come up with each week using their stash of supplies.  This week's challenge "Scrap Attack" is a fantastic one:

Use only scraps for your project - (card base or similiar "base" ok to use new) but use some of the scraps- paper, ribbons, the odd single embellishment, etc OR recycle something- redo a former card, use something that was intended for a different purpose- ribbon from a package, coffee cup sleeve, corrugated paper, button from a shirt, etc. 

This should be easy, right??  I know I have an accordion file full of scrap papers so I'm sure you do to!

Here's my card for this week:
I managed to use scraps from Basic Grey's Green at Heart line, Bo Bunny's Vicki B paper pad & I think the other one is from My Minds Eye and is probably one of my oldest scraps.  The ribbon was from a drawer full of little cut scraps of ribbon that I've been hanging on to.  Even this image was one I got in a swap so long ago and hadn't had a chance to colour so it was nice to finally use it!

I can't wait to see what you come up with using your scraps!

Great card Crystal! I love how you were able to blend the different papers together even though they are from different lines. Great colouring too!
