Thank You Card ~ Autumn Fun (post #2)

I made this card using almost all scraps from my growing scrap pile.
I have this {bad} habit of pushing my scraps off to the side of my table then putting them into assorted baggies I have hanging around instead of putting them into the folders I have for each scrap color.
(See the photos at the bottom of this post. tee hee hee)
Well in my defense I would have to use my limited crafting time to reorganize my scraps. lol
The only part of my card that is not made from scraps is the card base unless you take into account that it was what was left over when I cut a base for another card.
hmmm that just might count...

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Rectangles cut at 1-5/8 x 1-1/4 attached to the card front then embossed using the Sizzix Botanical Swirl folder.
*Sentiment scroll from the Scroll Die from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment from the So Happy stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Leaf cuts from a Martha Stewart punch.
*Pumpkin stamp from (unknown).
*Stazon Timber Brown stamp pad.
*Ribbon from my stash.
May your day always be filled with love.

  3. What a great way to use up scraps and the little pumpkins are so cute. Thanks for playing along at Cuttlebug Mania this time x

  4. Fabulous card and great to use up scraps. I have sessions of scrap sorting when I'm watching the TV (when hubby is here) end up with bits all over the floor LOL! Have a great day.

  5. D, my mother would spend hours fitting a pattern to printed material to keep the design intact. The colors and embossing with happy faced fall pumpkins make one sweet card.
