The Shabby Tea Room - week #3 - Let's Get Scrappy

Here's my card for The Shabby Tea Room - week #3. The challenge this week was to create a card or project using "scraps" of any kind...I chose to try and make a very small dent in my paper scraps but I think I'd need to make at least 3000 more of these to clear it LOL!

Materials used: Dovecraft card, K & Co die-cuts, Prima pearls.

Paper scraps, lace and pins from stash.

I started by placing the paper on card and lightly gluing it:

I then cut off all the excess paper before sewing along the edges and then sewing randomly across all the scraps:
