Topic: Scrap Recovery
Having used up the brown table scraps I moved on to the reds. I didn't have as many of these - in fact, only enough to make ONE card!
I actually used reds AND pinks and stayed with a straightforward striped background. With such a bright layout I needed to go very dark for the embellishments. I pulled out a black Dazzles sheet that was all various banners. I cut one word in two so I could fit the words on the stripes. The black strips give the banners something to 'hang' from and I curved the banners as I applied them
I used a black marker to draw little bows at the banner ends.
