The Scrap Factor #1

Hi there!  Today I am sharing a card that I created 100% from scrap. Hence the title Scrap Factor.  I am going to see how many of these scrap cards I can created throughout the remainder of the year.

Everything from the base card to the rhinestones were leftover from a previous card class that I taught. 

The dark aqua strip was leftover from cutting a Memory Box card down to create a square card.  I decided to use my EK edger punch on it and then I ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots EF.  The print cardstock was already this width and I added the brown cardstock to give it a bit of a "pop".  I stamped the Wordsworth Mother Theresa sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa ink onto a Neenah White circle and layered it to a brown scallop circle Nestie.  I finished off my card with a bow and a flower (yep, they were leftovers too!)

Do you like to use your scraps when you create?  If so, I would love to see your Scrap Factor cards too, leave me a comment with a link and I will check them out!

I love this, Melissa! I never thought to emboss and use a border punch at the same time!
