Turning Scraps into Cards

oh wow... I got another night to play around with scraps and cards... My goal for the month is 15 cards ONLY made from scraps, no NEW papers... and I think I have just about hit it. Here are the ones I got done last night:

Used the sketch from The Sweetest Thing #100 for this one, I LOVE the pattern on this paper- the blue and black with just an edging of green in the corners:
upclose details:
I found this ribbon in a kit bag and oh my gosh LOVE it.. and I'm totally not a purple person, but LOVE the combo of red and purple together. I think I'm going to have to try that one again. I used the sketch from CPS 201 for this one.
I've been dying to try out this cute banner stamp I got awhile back and finally just made the move and used it.. I like it, so I'm going to have to use it again forsure. I used the ICS #98 for this card and added the tag for some pop.
I finally made some good use of this adorable key in my stash... I've wanted to, but just waiting for the perfect project to use it on.. so I came up with this sentiment for a birthday card. I also used Sassy Lil Sketches card sketch from 1/14.
LOVE how fun the key charm is from American Crafts:
Clean and Simple: well I am really trying to be as clean as I can.. it's a hard one for me, but I determined to keep trying. I used their #123 sketch for this card...
And lastly, maybe my fave, I'm not sure, is this one using some Crate Restorations.. yup, I used my last of my last pieces from this line for this card. I also used Card Patterns # 98 sketch for this one...
don't you LOVE this vintage trim??? I do.
