A bunch of scraps

A bunch of scraps and stamped images hogging your desk?   Yeah, they were and still are hogging mine, however, I did manage to gather FOUR (yes, count them, FOUR) scraps of paper - some with images to make a card.  The brown paper was cut in various shapes; the message was already cut out; the die-cut was sitting to the side and the glass gems were peeking out of another jumble of scissors and such.  I pulled them altogether and checked out the sketches for April on the Hero Arts blog and viola!    I also entered this in the challenge on A Blog Named Hero - new blog with tons of interesting things.

Products used:
Hero Arts "Manuscript Background - H2141
Hero Arts "Messages" - CG132
Hero Arts "Paris" - CL325
Clear gems colored with Copic Y19 - Napoli Yellow
Spellbinders Label 8 die-cut

So Many Flowers

I thought this was such a wonderful spring type of card.  I had pre-colored this Hero Arts wreath and was thinking in the round and also of the Die Cut Divas' new April Challenge.  I also saw the challenge at A Blog Named Hero, so I'm updating my blog to enter this in the wonderfully new blog.   I also quickly checked a great year old favorite, Lily Pad Cards and so this is going in the Simon Says Stamps challenge when I can load it in.  I added the Swiss Dots folder on the Spellbinders' Scalloped Lacy die cut for a little more texture and I love this card.  It is going to be difficult for me to give away; so full of spring energy.  Lots of dimension!  I'm entering this is the challenge today.
