Serendipity Stamps Challenge #23

Hi there!

Thank you all for being so sweet yesterday. It is so nice to be back sharing cards with you. Today it is time once again for a new challenge on the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. The challenge this week is to use paper scraps on your project.

Are you a scrap hoarder? I can't throw mine away - I keep every little bit or sliver, just in case!

For my card today, I thought I would use some patterned paper scraps to create a fun woven background.

I started by adhering the vertical paper strips to my card base. I just used a bit of glue at the top and the bottom, and left the middle un-adhered (is that a word?). Then I added the horizontal strips, weaving them in between the verticals. Easy peasy and look how cute!

The jar image and label are from the Jar Label Cling Set. I used more scraps to paper piece the jar and lid.

Won't you join us for this week's challenge? All you need to do is use at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your project, along with paper scraps, and link it up over on the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog

Here is this week's fabulous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team:
