Card of scraps

Every single piece of this card was a scrap. A leftover. An extra. I have a bucket where I put extra die cuts and I noticed the blue polka dot star on top of the green label and I liked it. I thought I could work it into a baby card. And then I remembered that I had a card with embossed baby feet on it. That thing is so old (easily 10 years!) I don't even remember what brand it is. Then I saw the cork star. And then the ribbon piece. The blue ribbon doesn't quite match but you know what? It was a scrap and by gum I was going to use it. That was the deal with this card - use up some of my crap stuff.
