April Showers

I couple of years ago, I bought the Clip-it-up system, and towards the end of making my bits and pieces usable, I sorted all my small scraps into color groups, put them in gallon storage bags, and clipped them up.  This would have been great, except my uncut paper is closer to my desk than the Clip-it-up, so I don't reach for those scraps as often as I should.  Today, I committed to that bag, and pulled out a bunch of blue bits to make this card.  It was fun seeing how the different papers tear.
  The image is from Totally Stampalicious, heat embossed and colored with copics.  The ribbons and buttons are also from my woefully underused stash.  I really need to shop less and stamp more!  This card is for Use It Tuesdays, and the following challenges:

Juliet, I am with your there! I wish I could use the scraps more and buy less too! You have done a great job with your scraps and the card is fabulous - I love those grumpy old women. Thanks for entering this in LIIU's April Challenge and best of luck!
