Simple Girl Birthday Card Using Scraps

I made twenty of these simple cards for church this afternoon using scrap paper from CTMH, MME, and ?.  Close To My Heart "Pear" ink was used to stamp the "happy birthday" sentiment (also from CTMH).

Normally I would have used a little bit thicker ribbon or maybe wrapped the twine more than once around the card front.  However, this twine was pre-cut for another card and then I ended up not using it for that project.  So..........I ended up making use of some of it.

Sure.  I could have done more...........but I kinda like the way it looks the way it is.  With all the different scraps used, I didn't want to clutter up the card too much.

TIP: When using scraps, try to use ones that have colors that are repeated in at least one of the other scraps.  Three is a great number of times to repeat a color sometimes.  Just food for thought.  :-)

Thanks for stopping by.
