This is the example of the SGC challenge I'm hosting this month over @ Swirlydoos. The challenge is to make your own background paper from scraps. I keep my scraps by color in plastic envelopes and every now and then I'll take one of these envelopes and create a "new" piece of 12 x 12 paper. Just arrange your scraps and glue them on a piece of cardstock or "ugly" paper. The idea of the scalloped strip with the ribbon and roses is taken from one of my favorite artists GabrielleP.
