Usin' Yuzen Scraps


I pulled out this Yuzen paper a while ago...do you recall it was in my "Papers By Catherine" I had never opened?...I found it matched well with these two burgundy cards by Magenta (5 1/4" x 7 1/4"). Yet I had no plan for the card. So it sat in a pile. Until now :)
I was going through my closet and found this lavendar Hero Arts textured cs and burgundy ribbon I bought at Camie's Paperie before it closed. I just needed some gold to set off the gold in the Yuzen (click on pic for a better look). The gold "paper" is by Magenta, but it is more like a fabric. This was also a package I had never opened! I layered the entire panel on dimensionals. Nice.
I made two cards, so I used up my two Magenta cards :) I still have some scrap of Yuzen, so I'll see if Laura and Kazan from 2 Sketches 4 You can help me out...

Beautiful, beautiful! You inspire me to do anything with your creativity. As long as I use your ideas as my canvas, I can make so many lovely cards. But somehow, they never look as good as yours. You work magic!

Usin Yuzen ... har, har. But I do admire your ability to use scraps; unlike me, a total failure in that regard. Give me a piece of virgin card stock and I am home free! ;-)
