Scrapy scrap challenge

hey all,
      One of our talented indian crafters,Shalini of Craftcurry, hosted a challenge, in which she would send us some scraps and we are supposed to make cards out of it.

These are the rules (taken from Shalini's blog)

Apart from the scraps you receive, you are allowed to use only the following basic supplies:
  1. Card Stock
  2. Adhesives
  3. Color pens/Markers/Pens and other writing instruments
  4. Your tools like the scissors, punching machines, die cutters, etc…  Only the tools/machines can be used… what you use them on, has to be either the above card stock or the scraps…
  5. * Only one stamp allowed
          * Nimage stamp allowed... only borders, sentiments, flourishes, etc allowed :)

These are the scraps I received.These are the cards I made out of it.

The first one is a shaker card. The butterflies inside the window will move around when shaked and there is my favorite heart punch flower. The embellishment was small, so i added on to it by running her ribbon around a circular cut frame and mounted over a scallop circle.It is placed on acetate strip and it should be pulled out to open.In the left,drew lines in regular intervals,cut and folded the alternates.Brightened up the PP and added polka dots with white marker.

The second card is made out of the scraps of first card.

And congrats to Tejal , for winning this event!! and all the entries were outstanding.. we had difficult time voting
