Check out the scraps!

Today DCM dare is set by Jane who's asked for card designs inorporating checks. I decided to combine this with the 'use your scraps' challenge at Just Bex and made a very quick and simple card.



I had some white card embossed with the Cuttlebug D'vine swirls folder left over from the wedding cake card a few posts back and there are always scraps of black in your bits box, aren't there? I just punched squares with a small punch. I thought it would look striking against a bright colour and this orange laid paper (also fromt he bits box) did the trick. Stamped greeting and a bit of gel pen are the only other things going on here.

Thanks for looking!

Joanne - your card is really striking. The colours make it zing. I also love your 'late' haberdashery card.
