Scrap This

The Challenge this week is to use scraps - great idea - I have a drawer full of scrap bits that I save and then never use lol.
I kinda pinched this idea from my Big Sis and made a patchwork card from some of my scraps. I cut pieces of complimentary colours into 2 inch squares and glued them to CS.
I used a gold metallic pen to do some faux stitching, fraid I havent got a sewing machine I can use, OH says no point adding one to wish list cos I'd never find room on the table to use it!!!
I did the front and hadn't made any impression on my scrap bits so continued the patchwork on the inside.
The horse is a download from Victoria Case and the cowgirl is a stamp from the Young Uns set that I got at Ally Pally.
Flowers are from Donna and brad from stash. I also found this cute cat button and with his little Neckerchief I though he went well with the cowgirl image.
Hope you like it.

  3. A fab card - great images too

  4. Great idea, the fake stitching looks really efective, I use a tracing wheel and a fine marker for the same reasons as you, and I've fooled loads of crafters.janex
