Digital Tuesday Challenge 'Use Your Scraps!'

Hello and welcome to another Digital Tuesday Challenge. This week's challenge is to 'Use Your Scraps'. Just don't cut into any fresh pieces of brand new card stock (except for your card base of course), and use up all those scraps of paper lying around. Our sponsor this week is the fabulous My Grafico and they are giving away one digi set and 30% off an in store purchase to one lucky randomly chosen winner.

To make my card I used 'Monkey Fun Set' from Primsy Doodles. I printed the monkey image twice and popped his head and one palm leaf up on dimensionals. The sentiment and the leaves and coconut by the sentiment are from a Stampendous Stamp Set. The paper is DCWV 'Animals Crackers', SU! Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, and Melon Mambo. I wrapped hemp around my sentiment and just tacked it down in certain places with just the tiniest drop of Tombow Adhesive Glue. I got the sketch from the blog 'Torn Paper'. Here is a close up so you can see the dimension.

If you'd like to play along with us this week, simply click on the Digital Tuesday Challenge Blinkie in my side bar and it will take you directly to the site with further instructions.
Have a great day! Amy
