Using up the scraps~~~

Well woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't sleep so I decided to make a few quick cards.  I watched the U stream class of Prima Marketing on Thursday night and was amazed at the cards these two ladies made in such a short amount of time!!!  You can visit the site and find the link to the U stream class at www.LollyChops.com.  Now my cards dont look  like the ones she made but i used the same layout and some of the techniques from the show.  I used different papers and embellishments from my scraps, basically LEFTOVERS!!!!  Here they are.
 I made my own Lollipop flower by using some satin I had that just happened to match the paper!!!
 The ruffling on the bottom is made from paper but looks like ribbon.... doesn't it???
 Just a button and some satin leaves from a embellishment pack i used the flowers and not the leaves.  I knotted some twine and wrapped it for some more textures as well as embossed the bottom with the swiss dots embossing folder one of my favorites.
This is a great way to use up paper that we never part with that keeps growing and growing in our stash!!!  I need to do this more often but not in the wee hours of the morning when I wish I could be sleeping!!!  Thanks for looking !!
