2nd Post Today!! Use It!

If you haven't checked out the Use It! Challenge blog, go NOW! Each week, they post a challenge with elements that are probably in your scrap piles. It's great motivation to go through the stash and use up all that stuff (so you can go buy more, of course!)

This week, the challenge is to use monochromatic scraps, rub-ons or clear stickers, chipboard and an optional non-traditional ribbon. This whole card is from scraps, except the base. I'm a hoarder of scraps and have some tiny pieces that I save "just in case." My rub-ons are the letters for LOVE, and my "always" tag is a chipboard sticker. The optional non-traditional ribbon is the two strips of beads. I used Sticky Strip and brown microbeads. And yes, they are a tiny bit crooked! Simple, pretty, and made a tiny dent in my scrap pile.

Thanks for looking!

Melissa, this is too pretty! I love the scraps you used, and of course the microbeads are a fabulous interpretation of 'non-traditional' ribbon! :D
