Another Christmas Wreath With French Foliage

Scraps to Beautiful: French Foliage & Autumn Spice Blessings

Today's card is made with leftover scraps sitting on my desk.  I love these kinds of cards, because I never know what the end result is gonna be.  But 9 times out of 10, I'm really happy with it.

I had a one-layer clean and simple card made with Stampin' Up!'s French Foliage leaves that hadn't made the cut (so-to-speak).  I had hoped to have the leaves "swirling" in the wind.  But it just wasn't coming together the way I had imagined.  I also had a scrap of Autumn Spice Specialty Designer Series Paper calling out to me, "use it or toss it"!  (Hmm...does your paper talk to you?) 

So instead of tossing them both out, I thought "hmm...I wonder what it would look like if I tore the edges around the leaves, and add it to a Cajun Craze background, with the Autumn Spice DSP scrap at the bottom?  And there you go - love it!!!  Plus - it was probably the quickest card I ever made!


Of course - I had to add ribbon.  I tried both the 3/8" Twill Tape and Natural Hemp Twine separately and it didn't look quite right.  So, "hmm... (I should have called this the hmm...card), I wonder how they would look together...GREAT!"

So, what's laying on your crafting table?
