HIMCR -- SSS #123

Happy Saturday, everyone!
Since this is the second Saturday of November, today begins one of my favorite challenge themes at
It's time for Super Scraps Saturday.
So get out your scrap box and create something beautiful....or if you're like me, just dig through the pile on your desk.  I really do love using my scraps.  It always feels like I'm getting something for nothing.  Plus, it helps clean away some of my mess.  Double score!

Our sponsor this week is

I was lucky enough to receive this adorable image to play with for this week's SSS challenge:

She makes me think of Zsa Zsa Gabor.
Or maybe an animated version of Dr. Zhivago.
Isn't she just too cute?!

The pattern papers are from my scraps of Christmas papers I have left from last year.
The paper doily is from a hotel hubby and I stayed in a few weeks ago....
love using found items!

The ribbon and rick rack are both scraps that I've had for who knows how long.
In fact, I have no idea where the rick rack even came from!
The pine tips were snipped from a wall basket I had done for our front porch last year.
I knew I wanted to rework it this year so it's fair game to be pilfered. 

Other items used to make this card were:
Cardstock:  Recollections, Papertrey Ink
Coloring medium:  ProMarkers
Rhinestone stickers:  Michaels Dollar Bin
Wreath charm:  Joann
Pearl spray:  Hobby Lobby bridal department
Mulberry paper flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts

I need to play with my new light box a bit more.
Since I use a white poster board for the backdrop,
the pearl spray that's tucked into the pine tips is almost lost.
Maybe an off white/ivory poster board would help....?

Thank you so much for spending some time with me today!
All of us on the HIMCR Design Team are excited to see the new creations shared with us this week for our Super Scraps Saturday challenge.
