Brad scraps for PPA95

Here is a quick post for the Pals Paper Arts "BRADS" challenge.
For this card I decided to dive in my scraps bin... and here is my card.
I started with a perfect plum card base and for the rest of the DSPs it was all pieces and bits I had left over of (mostly) retired DSPs. I used the scallop edge on the olive gingham then layered a piece of the plum series DSP, then a layer of another piece of olive floral paper.
I created the main flower with the Fun Flowers die using scraps of pear pizzazz cs and springtime vintage dsp. I held this flower together with a pink corduroy (retired) brad then popped it up a dimensional.
I made the little tag from plum cs and stamped the sentiment in the same colored ink. I added a small flower with the Boho Blossoms punch to the tag and held it on with a small olive brad, then tucked a branch from the two step bird punch. I tied the tag on to the corduroy brad with some twine .
The second sentiment is stamped in plum on w.w. and punched with the word window punch, then two more olive brads hold that to the pink label mat and popped up with dimensional. 
Here's a peek at the inside and I finished the envelope with a piece of perfect plum DSP. Hope you liked my brad challenge card.

So pretty Diane! I love the artful mix of all the DSPs together--reminds me of a Vera Bradley purse. Gorgeous colors too! ((hugs))

Diane, you are able to make something beautiful that started off as scraps. I love how you pieced it all together. Hugs Karen
