Journey, Part Two

With increased demands on my time lately, I’ve found myself making several copies of the same card layouts and giving them to widely-scattered friends and family.  This bails me out when numerous card-giving occasions happen at the same time.  Surely I’ve got lots of company out there doing the same thing, right?  Anyway, I’ve accomplished quite a lot this way but have also found myself with a pile of scraps that are too pretty to throw away.  So I’ve been having fun figuring out ways to use these . . .

. . . Monday’s card (April 22) showed the original background – today’s card shows a weaving from the leftover trimmings.  It’s a shame to waste all of that time and those beautiful inks, don’t you think?
