Digital Tuesday Challenge #12 ---Use your scraps

Hello and a wonderful tuesday to all of you! Hope your day is going good so far.
It is time for another fun challenge over at the DTC blog. Plus we have a new sponsor again - Squigglegly is giving away 3 of their super cute images to one lucky winner.
The challenge hostess this week is Martha. She chose a wonderful challenge, something I personally should challenge myself to do more often!

Use your scraps of paper.

I have whole box full of designer paper scraps, and I look thru it every time I make a card. Funny, that most of the time I don't have just the right paper in there and another full sheet of DP is being started. So for today's card, before I even started coloring the image, I looked thru the box and colored my image according to the papers I chose to use. My image is from the Digital Stamp Oasis, it is actually called Susie squirrel loves dandelions, but today she loves these sweet pink flowers.
This time I used prismacolor pencils with baby oil for coloring. I did some distressing and also some sewing. The pink and green Designer Papers are from SU, I do not remember who makes the brown designer paper. The sentiment is also from SU. I embellished with white grosgrain ribbon, some prima flowers with rhinestones and stickles.

Thanks so much for vising my blog today, hope you liked my card. And hopefully you will find some time to visit the DTC blog to see the other super talented Design Team member's creations and maybe even play along for a chance to win 3 digital stamps form Squigglefly.
