Thank you, friend

This is for the latest OCC sketch. I knew right away that I wanted to use my new JustRite stamps, and decided to make a monogrammed card for my aunt. I also challenged myself to use only scraps, as my scraps drawer is getting quite full!
I realize it ended up simple, but I'm trying to choose something I can replicate, as I want to make her a little gift set.

I am in LOVE with the Small Letter set from JustRite. Here I made the "Thank you, friend * I appreciate it*" sentiment. Can you imagine all the possiblities?

Stamps: Curlz Monogram, Small Letter (JustRite)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Blue Bayou, Whisper White cardstock, Soft Sky textured (SU)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky (SU)
Accessories: 1 1/4, 1 3/8 circle punch (SU), Perfect Paisley, Swiss Dots embossing folders, CB (Provocraft), Nestabilities (Spellbinders), flowers (Prima), pearls (Kaiser)

Wow! what a great card from using only scraps. Yeah! those scraps sure build up don't they.
But the card came out so so nice!!
Way to go!

Lovely card! I too challenge myself to use only scraps. I hate throwing away even the tiniest bit of paper. Limited supplies also help creativity develop.

Sometimes simple is best! I know what you mean about using scraps! Who needs to buy paper, when you've got scraps,right?!
Great card..
