True Scrap SSC236

Pin It Now! Being away for the holidays, I still have to drag supplies with me and play with paper!  I have downsized my travel stash quite a bit though, and am down to only 2 small totes.  So I'm limited in my choices.
I made this card following Stamping 411's sketch challenge using almost exclusively scraps.

There are some sneak peeks here!  The DSP, Everyday Enchantment, is my new favorite.
The die cut is the large doily from the Spring Mini.
Matching brad & DSP are Sale-A-Bration scores!  As well as the stamp in the center, Fresh Vintage.  Starts January 24...get 'em free with a $50 purchase!

I rolled a handful of scrap punches from the triple doily punch into cones, secured them with a bit of Sticky Strip, and made a medallion out of them. The doily border is a scrap from when I cut the middle out for another project.  Nothing has to go to waste!  I secured them to the card with Two-Way Glue.  Added a  little bit of Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon and stamped tags from Fabulous Phrases. 
Here is my scrap stash...

I love going through it and placing different scraps around a card base. It's a great springboard for ideas.

What do you think of my True Scrap medallion? :)
