Scraps


So when I saw Scraps as the Less is More challenge and I just had my parcel arrived from Simon Says Stamps with this fab Hero Art Butterfly, I knew I could paper piece using scraps. The papers I chose are ones I'm in two minds to bin cos I don't think they're that nice well except the spotty one but I do love how my butterfly turned out.

So I found some more scraps this time a couple of sheets of free papers again destined for the bin or to give away to Sis school craft class. Just used some gems for the head and antennas to finish.

I haven't got the first set of papers but I have got the second set and I know what you mean, I don't think I have used them and I feel I want to bin them too but they are MME so I am a tad reluctant.
As you may know I am not a butterfly fan but these are 2 great card, with the layers and the strip of DP.

I thought I had commented on these Debby because I know I saw them but maybe it was just when they appeared on my thumbnails. They are lovely. Fab papers and super design. Hugs, Lesley
