52 cards challenge - week 17

The prompt for week 17 of the 52 cards challenge was to use scraps.  I certainly have plenty of those, in fact most of my cards are made from them LOL.  The photos are not terrific, I'm afraid, I was having trouble getting the light right in my little photo studio.
The birthday card was for my son's 25th birthday and is done from Bo Bunny 'Timepiece' scraps, with some bits of corrugated card and a mis-stamped ATC.  I covered the joing between papers with a ribbon, stamped the sentiment and attached a key charm.
The Christmas card has two peel-off line frames - one interrupted with the sentiment - around a piece of Craft Creations snowflake paper.  I adhered a mix of die-cut and punched snowflakes over the top.  Very simple and quick to do!
