CAS Scrap Card

This card is SUPER quick, easy and simple. As my previous post stated, there’s a new blog on the block, Photo Synthesis Challenge, and part of their goal is to promote projects that use mostly recycled or re-purposed materials, to encourage us all to use what we have better, and to be more eco-friendly by following the motto "Use it up, Wear it Out!" For my card I dug into my scrap bucket (I know we all save those pieces we just might use someday) and challenged myself to only make a card using what I could find in the bucket (other than the base). Amazingly, it wasn’t that difficult, especially using the great inspiration I’ve noted below.
Sketch Inspiration ~ Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #53

Color Inspiration
S2G Twisted Thursday Challenge #66 ~ Orange and HOT
My card is definitely orange, and only the HOT summer sun can help the flowers grow.

Inspiration ~ Photo Synthesis DT Call Challenge Blog
This is a sample of how you can use colors and theme (flowers) to create a clean and quick card.

Ins and Outs ~ Oops
Stamps: The bad part about using your scrap pile for a card is you probably won't remember where everything came from . I'm fairly certain all the supplies I used were from Stampin' Up.
