Super Scraps Saturday

We all look forward to this each month at Hiding in My Craft Room A way to use up those scraps that we seems to have taking up space. Here is this weeks card.

All the pieces used in this card are scraps that I have in my scrap bag, the images I have made a while ago for other projects that they did not work for, so they have lived in the scrap bag till now, when I put them all together to make this card!! Love when even the scraps work together :)

The image is from La La Land she is called Ruffles Marci the sunshine is a Peachy Keen stamp and the cloud is a Cricut cut, but I don't know which one! The flower punch was used to create the flowers and I then used liquid pearls for the centres.

The sentiment is from the K Andrew Designs Stamp set Splash-tastic

So get those scraps and join in the challenge at Hiding in My Craft Room

It ended up being a very happy card and I love it!! The Sun Burst is totally inspired by Andrea Walford from Paper Crafts Library where I found a template for the sunburst, it was so much fun to put together, and I will be using it again!! 
All the papers are scraps from my scrap bag and I think they came together nicely!! The ribbon is from Stampin' up.

The images are all from Tiddly Inks 

I have used the K Andrew Designs stamp set SWEET JULY for all but one sentiment the other is from SPLASH-TASTIC SUMMER

The paper is a really old paper, that I have had forever, I really love the summer feel it has

The "shine on" is from Splash-tastic Summer

This is Summer Sweet Wren and all the images were coloured using water colour pencils and a blending pen

And for a celebration there is presents too!!
