Scrap cards - Tutorial

I've been having fun creating cards with a Starburst, using this TUTORIAL.  After making a nice stack of them, I had lots of scraps - the trimmed ends of the starburst.

These pieces are already glued to each other and arranged for color balance.

I placed the trimmed ends from the starburst onto a card, then added a ribbon and sentiment.   The ends of the ribbon will be glued to back of top layer of the card.   This sentiment frame is cut with a Spellbinder die.  Sentiment stamp is a clear stamp, but I can't remember who makes it.

I added some gem stickers by EK Success.  They are very sparkly and flat.  To get them to look even, I place the two end ones on the card, then add the middle one.  Tweezers help me to control placement.

This is my finished card.  That top layer is purchased handmade paper from Provo Craft with flower petals and grasses embedded in the paper.  I bought this years ago, so it's probably not available any more.  I layered the green top layer onto brown cardstock, then on a tan base card.

Now, I have more scraps to design some cards with.  I'm sure I will continue making the starburst cards and the scrap cards.  Watch for them.
