Here is the inside of my card, I think this is just as important as the front!! We crafter's are perfectionists........ or maybe it's just me.
I used Papermania Lilac card and folded into a square card. I then cut away a curved corner in the bottom right hand-side. I then matt and layered the image with lemon and purple paper, edging the lemon with my decorative scissors. I used a lilac chequered paper on the front and inside to match the colour scheme. I embellished my card with adhesive pearls, lemon ribbon and lemon sequin flowers and a bit of doodling..... I love to doodle.
Now I'm off to try and see if I can make mr linky work and enter my card for the comp.

Had another spell in A&E tonight so not too happy, but will just have to wait for Thursdays CT scan to find out if there is another problem.
Lets just hope that I get to stay at home!!!

I love these food bags from Ikea, they come in two colours and sizes. Great for organising your crafts. So I started to think about what other uses or crafting techniques you can use your scrap paper for. I created this list:
- Punching out shapes
- Lining your envelopes
- Making a collage
- Making your own book markers
- Die Cutting (like myself)
- Weaving scraps like ribbon
- Paper Sculpting
- Making your own beads (tear strips and roll into a bead)
- Covering pencils to make them look unique
- Creating a mosaic
- Making your own flower embellishments
- Paper applique
- Making your own note book
- Using scraps to stamp onto
- Placing peel offs onto scrap paper and cutting out
- Making your own confetti
- Making matchbox size boxes
- Paper Mache
- Wrapping and decorating a chocolate bar as a gift
- Creating your own paper shoes
- Crimp it to give a different dimension to your card
- Paper piercing
- Use to Matt and layer your cards
- Use for journaling your scrapbooking pages
Well these are just a few of my ideas, but I would love to know if you have any of your own.
