Upsy Daisy

Evening everyone,

Today's card was achieved using nothing but scraps. I have a tonne of cut pieces of card and really should make it a mission to use more and more of them!
The technique used is Marvy Metallics with Glad Wrap (Saran Wrap to the Americans).

I was quite pleased with how it turned out...especially as I don't usually grab for this sort of colouring scheme. What do you think?

I amso lucky...Waiting on my daughter to come and cook me tea. The tradeoff is that she borrows my computer. Hey, I can live with that, no worries!

Stamps: SU Upsy Daisy Inks: StazOn Black Cardstock: White Gloss, Bazzill Other: Ribbon, Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Marvy Metallic Pens Gold and Copper, Glad Wrap
