Random Card - Cleaning out Scraps of Scrapbook Paper

I'm usually drawn to bright cheery colors but I decided to create a card using subtle colors.

I have a large pile of scraps of scrapbook paper. Considering a sheet of scrapbook paper is 12 x 12", well that's a lot of paper. I don't like to create cards consecutively using the same materials so what happens is I end up with a stack of scraps. Aggghhh. . .

My goal this week is to clean out my scrap pile . . .at least reduce it a bit.
The large flowers were rubber stamped on to scrapbook paper then colored in using Prismacolor markers. The center of the flower was rubber stamped on to another piece of scrapbook paper then cut out. I then remounted the center of the flower using foam tape to give it a 3D effect.

Card Detail:

Stamp Set: Autumn Leaves Flowers
Paper: Colorbok and DCWV scrapbook paper
Ink: Stampin Up Baroque Burgundy, Prismacolor markers
Accessories: Gallery J scrapbook pieces, rub on and ribbon

Unitl later. . .
