Top Tip Tuesday: Numbers & Polkadoodles: B-day with Scraps

Hi there - talk about what a difference a day can make, yesterday it was over 100 degrees and today we were lucky if it went over 70!  LOL  I spent yesterday at my craft table, this is a card I made for my friend to give her son, who is turning 21.  I'm entering it into the:

I printed the numbers onto a piece of white cardstock and then onto DP, and paper-pieced them.  All DP, buttons, and brads are from Stampin' Up!  My "tip" is to use your scraps as accent pieces - I printed the "Happy Birthday" sentiments onto 2 pieces of scrap (I use adhesive to attach the scrap to a piece of full size paper so it doesn't get stuck in the printer) and then attached one as a border/strip and used a circle punch for the other.
