Owl Be There

This card was actually a good way to use up scraps! That's ironic because making scrappy log cabin quilts is a good way to use up scraps of fabric! I thought making a log cabin block out of Basic Grey paper would be fun! I had to make this card big to be able to show an accurate view of the block. The part that was tricky was finding scraps from various BG papers in lights and darks that coordinated well. Sometimes, the different packs don't have enough darks, and then the colors in the different lines don't always coordinate! Who would have thought that using scraps would be so difficult!! This really ended up being a fun card to put together. I had wanted to stitch around the different papers, but I decided against it because it would've gotten just a little too busy for my taste! This is a cute set by The Greeting Farm called Deer Friends.
