Playing with Scraps...

I have been having fun with the Hero Arts Alphabet Uppercase set. While I was working on other projects, I had a scrap piece from using the diecut. So I made another card with the scraps! This is the best part of paper-crafting as the possibilities are endless :)
HI
After some stamping and layering, I think the card is still lacking "something"!?  I decided to make a button flower to go with the design. Since I did use the negative part of the diecut, I may as well enter this in the Emphasize the Negative Challenge over Moxie Fab World!
 Ding--->have you played with your paper scraps? Sometimes the best idea comes when you least expect it. Consider using up the scraps in your stash and give yourself a little exercise. You may not be happy with the result (and don't worry about it if it didn't turn out), but the process is....oh.so.precious! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
