thank yooOOOoooOOooO!

if you read miss june's blog, simply elegant papercrafts... (i'm assuming you DO, obviously, what with being discerning folks of sophisticated taste!)'ll have already seen the card i made to thank her for my cool surprise package last week! but now you'll get to see it again! HOORAY! :)

in her honor... (miss june is quite famous for using her scraps in such a timely & thorough fashion that some of us have been moved to wonder WHERE the scraps she uses come from, exactly??!) ...i tried to compose something *entirely* of scraps and leftovers. and i failed. ...but...i had a good go of it and used up quite a few "leftover" bits in ways i would not have done, if she had not inspired me with her good example! in fact, i don't think i've ever managed to use as many bits and bobs together...but i'm really happy with the way it turned out, and i will definitely be employing this strategy again in the future!

so thank you AGAIN, june!!!

(kraft cardstock: jam paper; patterned paper: creative imaginations, rhonna farrer, plus vintage ledger & a bit of bengali newspaper; flowers: prima; chipboard scroll: fancy pants (covered w/newspaper, cut out, & coated with papier glass finish to seal); felt fusion: queen & co; rub-ons: hambly, american crafts, autumn leaves, making memories; ghost heart: heidi swapp (covered in diamond glaze and encrusted with a LOT of crystal glitter); jewels: mambi; inks: color box; pen: zig)
