Cards from Scraps

I found that I had a lot of leftover paper scraps and a bunch of previously stamped pieces that I had saved. So I coordinated them and made some random cards. Some could probably still use a piece of ribbon or a word or two, but they were so quick and easy to make(while I watched a movie). Have a great stampin' week and have fun with your scraps, too.
