Use It #4

Hi everyone! Here's my Use It #4 card. We were asked by the lovely Judy to use:
Scraps of any kind -
check! As you can see, I have many short scraps of ribbon, some are only about 2 inches! It was time to *use them*! I also only used scraps of paper on this card. The aqua is K&Co, the pink is Making Memories and I think the Easter Egg one is Provo Craft, but I'm not sure.

Punches and/or die cuts -
check! I used my Fiskars border punch.

Two or more different ribbons -
check! 3 ribbon scrappies were used :)

One or more embellishments that you once loved and use a lot, but haven't used for a long time -
This one was tough for me, but I finally came up with staples. I used to use them all the time, especially when attaching vellum, but I haven't in a while. So, I added tons of Making Memories aqua staples haphazardly, to look somewhat like messy stitching.

I'm not sure about the image, it came in a swap, but I colored it a bit with my watercolor pencils. I've been using mostly pastels for my Easter cards, so I thought it would be fun to use bright colors this time ;) Hope you like, and thanks to Judy for a neat challenge!

Adorable card Suzanne! I never in a million years thought to save small ribbon scraps, now I know there is a use for them and I am going to start saving them! Love the staples, I thought they were stitching when I first saw them, your technique is awesome! Have a great weekend!

This is a really cute card! I have those staples, too, and never use them. I am going to have to on a future Use It! challenge. Great job!

You sure did a wonderful job with that challenge. I thought the staples were stitches as well. like the look you achieved with those. Your card turned out super cute!
