Scrappy Birthday

Hello! Today's Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS was to crinkle cardstock and make these adorable flowers : ) You can see the tutorial for these here. I've been wanting to try this for a while, so I had to play today! I pulled out my scrap bin, and gathered these scraps from My Mind's Eye Just Dreamy 2 collection. The base of the card is Ruby Red. I used various circle punches for the circles, then used my Tim Holtz Distressing Tool around the edges. I crinkled each layer up, then stacked them together. How fun and easy, right?!? The sentiment is from Verve's Wishful Elegance set and I stamped it with Chocolate Chip.
This next project is a sneak peek of one of the new Digiments that will be released on Saturday! Michelle has 30 new Digiments for you and they are a steal at $1.00 each or all 30 for $20!!! This one is kind of hard to read in the picture but it says Count your life by smiles not tears, count your age by friends not years. Happy Birthday. I decided to make another one of these super cute cupcake boxes. I used Mellow Moss for the base, and some Melissa Frances dp on top. I added the lace, pearls, and flowers and used my Spellbinders Tag Trio to cut out the Digiment. Thank you so much for stopping by today! I won't have anything new over the weekend because I'm heading to South Beach for my girl's weekend woot, woot!!! Have a fabulous weekend : )

What is that ribbon you used in the middle of your first card? I've seen you use it before and I think I want it..... Love your lil' handmade flowers too - I've seen some tutorials for them...thinking I may give it a go soon. Have fun this weekend - but not too much fun ;)
