No waste card

Today I want to share a card I made on the fly. I had a downline meeting with my Journey Coaches and we were working on various projects. One of my gals was working on her February bloom box, specifically the background technique using re-inkers on a block and taking the bottom of the bottle to make rings on the background. So after she was done she had a block with ink all over it. She didn't want to waste the ink so she asked what can we do? I took the block and tapped the bottom of the re-inker bottle all over to make a funky pattern in the remaining ink. I then took the block and stamped it directly onto a scrap piece of Whip Cream paper. 
I added a few feather stamps in Hazelnut Blend and the "Your are awesome" banner. I layered the Whip Cream on Sweet Berry  and then added some twine around. I then popped it up on Hazelnut Blend cardstock  and then popped it up on Sweet Berry card base. A few rainbow drops and button to finish it off. It was fun  challenging myself to come up with a drain on the fly. Sometimes its nice to come up with simple cards for any occasion. Don't over think it and just go with what you have handy. I hope you enjoy this and will try it out yourself.
