Oh Scrap!

ABC Challenges are getting us to use up our scraps this week!
I know you all have tons of scraps of paper and card and some are so precious that even the tiniest strips are hoarded!  That was the case with the Basic Grey and My Mind's Eye papers we were using at a workshop with the lovely Sandie Dunne I went to on Saturday at Crafty Angels fabulous shop in Newbridge, Kildare.  The shop is so well stocked! Gorgeous selection of dies and embossing folders, too.
But back to the card.  I paper pieced the rainy day Anya image from one side of the beautiful double sided paper, and die cut clouds from the other side, inking the edges with Broken China.  Another hoarded piece of paper was fishtail-cut and put along the bottom of the card - it reminded me of raindrops.  A piece of kraft card was embossed with dots (raindrops again) and layered onto the red side of the paper, then everything was placed onto some blue Adorable Scorable cardstock.  Anya was coloured with Copics.
So come on, here's your chance to use up some of that stash of scraps and enter your cards over at ABC Challenges!
