Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday Challenge #69

So yesterday, I hinted to how I would use these gorgeous papers from Sweet Cassie. Well......here is what I had in mind. My brother brought me this magazine from the UK called Craft Stamper. My awesome SIL picked it out for me. Thanks Mitz. On the last page, they show a card made using strips of scrap paper. Great way to use up scraps. I chose to use strips of Cassie's RAK DP. I love it!!!!

I am bringing my favorite flowers, Daisies to the teaparty.


I cut 1/4 strips and adhered them to my CS (4 1/2 square card). It was curved when I finished so I let it sit under a stack of books over night then I adhered it to heavy cardstock, using dimensionals because I wanted to cover up the back of brads. I used the flourish from Pansy set around the edges in white and black. Not sure I like it but wasn't about to scrap it. No sir! Not after all that glueing of the strips. Are you kidding? Hee.

Thanks for visiting me today.
