Squigglefly "Scraps"

It's Monday so that means it's a fresh, new challenge for you at Squigglefly!!
It's my teams turn at bat to inspire you with our projects so you can run over to the store, pick up a stamp and join us in our challenge!!
Our challenge this weeks is "Scraps". Use up some of the odd bits laying around. Here's what I came up with:
I love this image!! It's called "Small Friendship"  by artist Cheryl Alger. My scraps are those circles of the blue and white checked paper that I punched with a 1/2" circle punch and then glued to the back of my image panel to make it look like a nestie shape. That flourish has literally been sitting in a dish on my desk for months. I had die cut it and it is such a bright green I've just never used it. But it goes well with these bright, vivid blues.
Here's a close up:

She was colored with Copics. I've misplaced my list so lets see how close I can come by memory:
Skin: E00, E000 and R20
Hair: E17, YR24, Y21
PJ's: B04, B02, B00
Ottoman: R22, R20, YR28, Legs...not sure, but obviously something in the E's ;p
Cheese: Y17, Y11
Rat/Mouse: E74, E70, R02

The papers are a from a few different digi sets at Stamp Fairy.
I think that's about it. Can't wait to see what you can do with some of your scraps! And right now there is a sale at Squigglefly on all of the St. Patrick's Day images.
