Card of Scraps - Argh!

This week over at Creative Critters Imaginations we are continuing the recycled theme for Earth Day.  I have very limited time right now as I'm putting together graduation invitations/announcements for my niece.  My room is covered in royal blue and gold.  lol  So this challenge actually worked in my favor this week.  I have a drawer where I put all of my scraps and designs I didn't use from my Imagine.  This is what my drawer looks like:

I found these 3 cuts at the bottom of the drawer and a card came instantly to mind:

To make the boy stand out on the map background I glued him down on white paper and made my own white shadow for him.  I then wrapped white twine around the whole thing in an X design.  I seriously made this card in less than 7 minutes and at least half of that time was making the shadow for the boy.  Love it!  :)

Here is what the inside of the card looks like:

Card Size - 5"x5"
Boy - 4", Map - 4.5", Lobster - 2" - These are real sizes as I don't remember what they were when I cut them out.

You are genius Pam! I need to get back into card making! My brother in law's birthday is today. Maybe that's a good start. With your fabulous new website it'll be easy to cheat and get an idea from you! Hehehehe!
