Scrapbox challenge

Apologies first  for the photo quality but the light was poor and some of the scraps were shiny!!
Anyway this week's challenge at CBGM is

to create a project using scraps or elements from your scrapbox - the topper can be new but everything else needs to be from the scrapbox. For this challenge you need to take a before and after photo.
My base card is white A5 and I distressed the edges with Antique Linen. The backing paper is similar to brown parcel paper and was the insert on a pack of parchment paper, I punched the corners with MS daisy punch and matted it to the base and wrapped a length of brown vintage ribbon around the middle. The yellow layer was mottled card stock with a torn edge and I used the waste from the punched corner to create the negative daisy shape. The top piece on the left picture was left over from a print out of a BP from a cd and I tore it and positioned it on top of the yellow card stock and using a small tonic punch, punched out flowers from the yellow card for embellishments. The flower was also punched out of the remaining scraps and a gem brad used to hold them together. The topper is a bookmark that is from a series of art pictures, this being Klimt, that I found in The Works. I matted it on to a strip of gold mirri card that I cut with decorative scissors. The sentiment is stamped on an SU label stamp.

Good luck with the challenge and please remember that to enter you must be a follower of Gill's blog and link your post directly to the challenge and mention Creations by Gill McCall in your posting.
