Scrap Your Crap Challenge!

Greta and Simone sent a bunch of us some crap a few weeks ago. What was it you ask? Well, it was a green paper lace. Except I didn't keep it green, I painted mine white and sprinkled glitter on it. (Just to drive Simone crazy! : ) I backed it with some lime green paper and placed that over some cool black and white Making Memories paper. The butterfly stamps were from Scraptivity! I added some rhinestones to their bodies....cuz it is all about bling with me! Making Memories also makes these cool felt pieces. So I used them under their bodies.
The sentiment was from Papertrey Ink. So head on over to the Scrap Your Crap site and check out what all the girls did with their green lace!

Bravo to you for going so out of the box...I saw it this morning and I went whoa! I so wish I did the same thing but I like how mine turned out anyway (in fact, I may just use that crap up!).

I would have never thought to paint the paper a different color. Great thinking outside the box. Fantastic card.

Totally awesome though, I would never think to paint it and not just because it would be messy. lol
