Keep it Simple Sunday

One way to make quick and easy cards? Use your scraps!! The three thin slices of cardstock on today's card were all in the "discard" pile next to my crafting area. Two of the pieces I used on one card and the third on a second but the colors all worked well together. I simply stamped a background image, created a focal point with a main image, and added an embellishment! (I didn't even cut the scraps!) Total time to make this card - about 15 minutes! Now that is one way to keep it simple! :-) All of stamps used on this evening's card, with the exception of the "Friend" sentiment, which is from Papertreyink, are from Stampin' Up! The buttons are from a giant bag 'o buttons, where all lost and lonely buttons go! I layered two buttons to get the white/red effect. Gives the card a nice pop of color! Oh, the background leaf image is also from PTI and has been stamped with VersaMark ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. Enjoy!
