Hi!

Well, I started looking at my ever growing scrap pile and decided I needed to work from that if at all possible, so this is what I came up with.

I used a few challenges as my inspiration.   Colourq84 for color.
My theme inspiration transpired from The City Crafters 56 Challenge ~ By The Sea. Show anything sea related. 
My Craft Spot - Bling it up!
Creating a Whisper White card base, I started adding my various pattern papers I had in my scrap pile to create this nautical friendly greeting.  The pattern paper is all from Stampin' UP! The stamps used are from Wilson Designs.  I tucked the cute little greeting from Spring Silhouettes under a button and worked my way left with various buttons (sigh I just love buttons, and I have several in my stash to use up) and finished off by sort of casing myself here with the anchor charm. I know I have been using this set a lot lately, but I just love it! I have been waiting to use this Daffodil Delight Pom Pom trim from Stampin' UP! I just had to add it to this card! 

The sailboat was paper pieced on a Martha Stewart doily. Finised embellishing touches with some paper roses and rhinestones. 

I  usually never comeback and share my happy news, but THIS card was selected as an Artist Spotlight over at the City Crafters Challenge Blog.

Thanks for stopping by to see me!

Tammy, this is super cute! I love that color combo with Kim's set! That turquoise color is perfect "ocean" color! I love the little tags you created with other elements esp. the anchor!

This is fantastic!! Well done you for using your scraps! I love the little boat and the gorgeous doily cut out, and the lovely buttons too.

I have 3 boxes of scraps that are overflowing - you have given me a nudge to re-look at them and use something!

So pretty Tammy! Love all the fun stuff on this! The doilies are my favorite! I use them all the time~ The buttons, flowers and pom pom ribbon are very cool! I need to work on my scraps too, but then I keep finding more paper I like so it is a never ending cycle!
