Pinterest: I Tried It (Scalloped Card)

Welcome Pinners and friends!  If you've tried something from one of your pinboards this week and blogged about it, you can link up your post at the bottom of this one.  I really love to see what you come up with and how you interpret your pins.

This week's project was meant to be last week's project, but you all know how that went.  Fortunately I got pictures before everything happened, so now I just have to finish it off!

I have been doing a seasonal/holiday card swap with my two Etsy pals Heidi and Rachel, and with Halloween approaching, I wanted to get my cards made and sent.  The problem was, I didn't have a lot of Halloween-ish supplies around.  I did, however, have lots of 1-inch or so sized scraps leftover from my fall garlands. (Yes, of course I keep 1-inch sized pieces of paper.  Who doesn't??)  And I remembered this card I found on Pinterest:

So cute!  I decided to do a take on this with my square scraps and some ribbon:

I intended for them to have a square plate that said "happy fall" but it ended up so close to the top of the card that I thought it would look too crowded.  I really like how they came out, but next time I'd like to make them a little fancier.  I love how it's a great use of scraps, though!

So how about you?  How were your pinning experiments this week?  Link up below or leave a comment!  And remember- same time next week!  I had a lot of fun trying this one out and may stick to the sewing board for a little while.

Feel free to grab a botton to add to your post to share this link-up with your readers!
