A Scrappy Christmas

Challenge #5 for  FOSTV   (Fiends of Speedy TV)is now underway. I am making a card using scraps. Pulling out my scrap drawer, I found several Christmas papers to use for the pennants. I ran my embossing folder through the Grand Calibur. Why not the Cuttlebug????? Because I BROKE it. Ugh! I've had it about three years and assumed that day would come and it did...all my fault.

My image is from Mark's Finest Papers and is a stamp set called Cardinals in Winter.

I'm entering my card into Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge #79 and they are wanting us to use our scraps this week.

Recipe:
Stamps-Cardinals in Winter
Paper: PTI white cardstock, SU cherry cobbler
Ink: Tuxedo Memento Black
Accessories: Copics, Spellbinders Nested Pennants,  Spellbinders circle and scallop circle nestabilitie,  Flower Soft (adhesive gold stickers for hanging pennants), Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder

This is beautiful! A scrap drawer...hmmmm....sounds like something I really need! You broke your Cuttlebug, what were you running through it???? I've been using mine with aluminum soda cans lately so I hope I don't break it - LOL.
