Thursday Blast From the Past Challenge - 7/15 - Gatefold Card with Scraps!

hey hey!! it's Thursday! and time for a new blast challenge..
(woooohoooo on all the entries for the Split Technique - there were 53! a record for my blast challenges - so glad you enjoyed it)

This week the challenge is to do a Gate Fold card ...and the "twist" - to use only scraps! (with exception of your card base)
I cant be the only one with enough scraps that it makes me cringe - yet, I keep cutting into new and making more and more scraps!...Stop the insanity heeeeheeeeeheeeee..sooooooo

I am on a personal "scrap" journey to use up my scraps!! and inviting you to join me this week
(course, I sure hope this journey is more successful than my "weight loss" journey LOL)

glitter shows better if you enlarge pic (-:


This was all done with scraps (except base), I recognize scraps from GKD's Asparagas, Rose images were done with GKD's "A Year of Flowers" and "Pressed Flowers" (both by Melanie), colored with Copics V01, 04, 17, highlighted roses and leaves with Lilac glitter pen, mini adhesive pearls and crepe flower is inspiration from Selma Stevenson aka Queen of Flowers!
inside of the card is GKD's Botanical image and sentiment stamped with Vivid's Rose and Memento Black.
ok ok ok! if you dont have scraps (you are my hero!!) or you dont want to use your scraps - then you are free to cut into that cardstock for your project...and have more scraps!!

hope you try this and have fun! that's why we do this!!!
have a blessed week
hugs everybody (-:

You crack me up! Love your card! Inspiring...
I put my scraps back in the package it came out of and I seem to keep it used up that way! Now when I grab a package of paper I use the scraps first!

Beutiful! Love the purple and green together. I'm like Patti, I have all of my scraps in accordion files, by family/color. I also have a separate accordion file with my dp scraps. I always check the files for the colors I want to use and for inspiration. Have a good one, Linda!
