Using Those Many Scraps

As I mentioned yesterday,  I am trying to use some of the many scraps and supplies that I have accumulated in my studio.  Yesterday I saw a tutorial on Operation Write Home about making a Dimensional Ruffle card and thought this would use a lot of those pattern paper scraps from 6x6 paper pads and be a fun way to use up a lot of those 6" Strips as well as some of my button stash.
I used Martha Stewart scallop dot border punch, scraps from MME, ivory card base and coral cardstock, ribbon and buttons from stash.  I have about one hundred of the pearl buttons and colored some to match my card. Tip:  I used one length of twine and looped all the buttons together which made it easy to arrange and attach to the card using Matte Accents.  The sentiment is from Poppy Power Azaleas stamp set in Memento Peanut Brittle ink on a circle of ivory cardstock  and matted on another scrap.

Hi, Theresa! I love this ruffled card and may have to try that with some of my papers. The row of buttons is adorable too. Hope you are well and enjoying the early spring blooms!
