Scrappy Heart

Hi bloggers, hope you're having a lovely Sunday wherever you are.

Time again for the Less is More Challenge, which this week is "Don't Scrap It!" (ie. use up some of your scraps)

I'm sure we could all make a thousand cards with all the scraps we keep.  Rummaging through my scraps I couldn't believe just how many tiny scrappy bits I keep!

I've made a card with some thin strips of paper I found ....




I glued the strips onto a plain piece of paper then cut it out with a Sizzix heart die, edged with Victorian Velvet DI.  Sentiment is Stampin' Up, punched out with an SU  heart punch.  


The gold ribbon was in my scrap box too and already had a small punched heart attached to it, so I just used this to finish off the back of the card.

Thanks for visiting - hope you're all enjoying the mild weather.

Bye for now.
