Whimsical Wednesday - Use your scraps!


I know - I know.... it's not Wednesday!  Whimsical Wednesday's is a challenge site that I just found recently and fell in love with!

This week, the challenge is to use your scraps to make a card or project. Now there's a challenge I could get behind since I have a huge collection of scraps and I'm starting to feel guilty about not using them more. You can find out the rules and more information at the Whimsical Wednesday site HERE.

So here we go...

All of the paper scraps and various embellishments (even the rub-on sentiment) came from leftovers from an old Club SEI monthly kit. I was glad I was finally able to use up some of these as I usually end up with lots of scraps from the kits but can't quite bring myself to get rid of them. It's a bit hard to tell, but the cake was cut out of the white card stock (using Sweet Treat) and then the pattern paper layered behind it.  Hope you like it!

Take Care!
