Donelda's crap...I mean SCRAP challenge!

Donelda challenged her blog readers to a "scrap exchange" type swap! I sent her 3 pieces of my crap...I mean scrap.....and she sent me 3 pieces of her "scrap"! I SHOULD have taken a photo of what she sent me, but I didn't....I will next time! I had this idea in my head and well, it didn't quite come out the way I wanted it to, but since I already cut the paper all up, I had no choice to work with it!!! This is what I came up with. She sent me a small piece of this funky black & white paper, a small piece of green with white dots and a piece of ribbon with green and red in it. I made it into a pinwheel card using the SU tag punch. I wanted to capture the colours in the ribbon which is why I chose a red base for the card. After I took this photo, I stamped "FRIEND" down the right side of the card with my karen foster snap stamps. I wanted to put it on the bottom but the ribbon would have covered it up. Anyways, this is the first card for her challenge & I can't wait to see what she makes with my crap!!! AND, I can't wait to see what she sends me next time...she said she went easy on me this time!! I totally went easy on her too, but next time....look out girl!!! Tee hee!!!!!
