Gotta use my scraps!

OK hands up who has bags and bags of scraps of paper that just might come in useful??? Oh come on I can't be the only one surely? I thought not! Well one of my resolutions is to start using up my scraps or if they've been in a bag for more than 6 weeks to bin them. Well I've made a start and made this card - the only new thing on it is the stamp.

OK it's definately not one of my best cards, but for one that took about 15 minutes to knock up and got rid of my scraps and then sold immediately I don't think it's too bad!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
