A few scraps

This card was created with leftover pieces from a previous card. I tied it all together with the flowers and scroll work. I am terrible for saving all my scraps but look how nicely it turned out. I have gotten better and now I only save the larger scraps. I must admit, my scrap drawers were getting pretty ridiculous. I have a rolling cart that has 6 drawers. One is filled with white scraps, one is cream, a  pink & black,  a yellow/orange/brown, a blue & green,  and a red/purple/metallic drawer. It sits right behind me and it is within arms reach so when I need a scrap it is right there.  I hate to waste paper but something had to give so now I toss out all the little scraps begrudgingly.  
The designer paper is All Abloom from SU. The card stock is also from SU and is Lost Lagoon and Barely Banana. The flowers were from the $2 bin at Michaels. I cut out the leaves with a Sizzix die called Branch w/Leaves and the scroll is Elegant Scrollwork from MemoryBox. The sentiment is from Just Right called Seeds of Kindness. The yellow panel was embossed with the Cluster Set embossing folder from Sizzix.

It has been a wonderful summer watching the twin fawns growing up and learning the survival methods they will need as they they continue to grow. They come to the yard daily and and they have now lost all their spots. We have also had a pair of cardinals that have raised their young in a nearby tree. I didn't realize how big of a role the male plays in raising the little ones. He feeds them and teaches them how to fend for themselves while the female starts laying her second brood of the summer. It is comical to see the young bird who is almost as large as the parents begging for food. We also have four turkeys that come almost daily. One tom and three hens - must be quite a fella cause the ladies sure seem to like him.

~have fun and enjoy!
