All My Love Scraps

Do you always wind up with bits and pieces of paper and wonder how you can use them? I just hate throwing away beautiful Stampin'Up(c) DSP paper! I saw a scrapbook page this week that was made using scraps that had been distressed and used to decorate the scrapbook page. So I took the idea and made an A2 greeting card.
