Scraps Challenge

I'm really big on using up my stash and especially my scraps!  Usually when I start a new project I hit up my scraps to see if anything there is inspiring me.  It's a good way to make room for new, right?  ;)

When I saw on Amanda's blog she was doing a scraps challenge I knew I wanted to participate.

Here's my scraps I dug around and found.  

Sorry for the blurry picture :(

A quick little hello card to send out to a friend.  These colors, the polka dots, zebra print... all right up her alley.  I know she'll love it.  

I used Lacy Labels Lite Cartridge to cut out the 2 scallops, the pink at 2.5 inches and the white at 2.25 inches.  Used some old letter stickers for the "hi" and some thin black/white polka dot ribbon.

I did something else I rarely do on cards to use up more scraps...

I added a little something to the inside of the card.  More scrap pink cardstock, leftover zebra paper and a couple buttons.  Usually on black cards I just use a gel pen to write a note but this is going to be a super quick note so the pink cardstock was the perfect size.  Plus it's more out of my scraps.  :)

I know I've mentioned many times how much I love challenges and how they really get me going to get creative.  This is Amanda's first challenge so if you haven't already joined - head over to her blog and challenge yourself to use up those scraps!  We all have them :)

Thanks for looking!
