Use those scraps

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another Friday Funday Challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack:

Now, I don't know about you, but I have a nice little stash of bits and pieces that are left over from other projects and even some die cuts, etc. that didn't end up making it onto the card they were intended for.  I really enjoyed this challenge as it gave me a chance to dig into that stash AND I was able to use up some scraps of paper with this fun layout, too.  Our sponsor this week is Sherri Baldy and I was given this sweet little image to use:
Look at her outfit closely: she's all bits and pieces of this and that herself.  So, here's the breakdown: the flower and leaves (already colored except I added some dark highlights to the flower), sentiment banner (plain, so I stamped the image specifically for the card), and pink ribbon were in that bits and pieces stash.  EVERY single piece of patterned paper used on this card are is a scrap.  The plaid background piece wasn't even big enough to cover the whole card, but with the circles added on top, no one (except you) will ever know.  I didn't even cut whole circles, as I knew I didn't need them and none of the scraps were large enough anyway.  But for this layout, it was perfect.
Yesterday was our fearless leader--Jo's--birthday, so make sure you hope on over to the blog to wish her happy birthday.  Happy Birthday, Jo!
