thanks much

Hi everyone! I'm happy to share with you today another 3 Girl JAM DT inspiration project. I had my scrap bin out... yes, you know, that ever-growing box full of pieces of paper and cardstock that I just can't bear to throw away. Go ahead and admit it - you have one too! ;) I wanted to create a card using up some of those scraps, and SCORE! Excluding the card base, very single paper element on this card was made from a scrap! Woot-woot!

This is a Z-fold card base. I used the Stampin' Up! Six Sided Sampler stamp set and matching punch for the hexagons which I layered onto stitched circle die cuts. I used my last piece of the absolutely gorgeous London Blue ribbon from the Wine & Jewels Bundle to create the multi-loop bow. You know how I love my big bows!

Here's the inside - the sentiment, four flags and a couple half-hexagons. I brought in several of the colors in the striped paper scraps. I added pretty little stamped/punched flowers colored with Wink of Stella to the centers of the hexagons. I'm really loving these 'scrap' elements! And as a side note, remember the song by Led Zeppelin called "Thank You" - written by Robert Palmer and Jimmy Page back in the late '60s? Yep, me too! ;)

And finally, here's an overhead shot - such an easy and fun fold!
