Made with scraps!

Good Morning!  I wanted to challenge myself to using up some of my scraps.  Lately the scrap pile has been getting a bit large.  So I reorganized it in hopes that I will go there first! Yeah, right, but I can try anyway - LOL

But this card I did make completely out of things from my scrap bin.  This is an adorable picture from Stretch N Bubbles. It was offered as a freebie this week you can find it at the SNB Shop.  I just love freebies!  I made him into rudolph because I wanted to play along at Southern Girls too and they had a transport theme.  Who better to do transporting at this time of year but Rudolph!  Then Polka Doodles was looking for a quick and easy card and this definitely falls into that!  I followed this easy sketch at Get Sketchy and since the image is quite simple it was a breeze to color.  Using my bow easy made the ribbon (RRR) look beautiful.  I was able to embellish it and still had it done within half an hour.  Easy Peasy!

All from my stash!
And the two little ribbons on top of my image were the ends cut off from the ribbon at the bottom.  No waste!

Challenges Entered:
Stretch N Bubblse - Use image given
Southern Girls - Transport (Rudolph transports Santa!)
