Help Wanted Card

Ok it is time to start clearing the scraps waiting for CHA new releases. I had pre-colored this image from the Hope & Grace Luandry collection from The Greeting Farm. She is stamped on Cryogen paper. I thought she was beautifully colored to match the paper scraps from a Flamingo 5 Dear Lizzy Paper that I did last year. I used the back side of the patterned paper to cut the loopy oval frame around the image.

From Flamingo Scraps: Seam Binding, Glimmer Mist, Patterned Paper: Dear Lizzy, Lace.
Other: Pearls, Spellbinders Loopy oval die cut, The Greeting Farm: Hope & Grace Laundry, Copics, Cardstock, EK Success Label Punch

After I fussy cut her out, I used one of my EK Success Label punches with the scraps of the cryogen paper (love the sparkles in this paper), and cut it in half length wise to make a tab/sign. Then I hand drew the "Help Wanted". I used my glimmer mists to add color to the little clothes pin. Then I finished off the card, by taking apart a mulberry flower to create 3 separate flowers. I then used buttons with seam bind scraps as flower centers.

This entire card was made from little scraps on my desk. LOVE IT!
