A Little Blue Button Scrapling

Here is a scrapling from one of Little Blue Button Stamps, the Die Cut Divas'March 2014 sponsor.  I cut one 2 3/4th inch by 4 inch piece off a card I didn't like and bingo!  A scrapling was born.  Remember, this is not a full size card.  I love little card so much I don't want to give it away.  I created the brick wall on which she is sitting by coloring Copic marker T1 across and then creating bricks by using Copic marker T2 and then continue T2 across the entire bottom of the card panel.  I used a white pen to put froth on her drink. I think she's adorable.

"Question: What is a Scrapling?
Crafters come up with all sorts of cool names for little bits of paper (such as the inchies, twinchie, and rinchie trio). Scrapling is another such term.
Answer: A quarter-size greeting card is typically 5.5 x 4.25 inches (the folded size). To make it into a square card, some crafters would cut 1.25 inches off the bottom. That little scrap of paper became known as ascrapling. Instead of throwing it away (it is usually very pretty, decorative paper), it is often used to craft mini cards, tags, and labels."
I see that the origin is none other than Hero Arts, here.

Update!  I am entering Oddball Art Stamp Company's first challenge.  Looks like it'll be fun.  The theme is to use a DIGI.  How cool is that?
