Scraps for embellishing Notepads

Scraps can make great little mats for embellishing those covered notepads I make (cards and scrapbook pages too, but I don't have examples of those today).  In this first example you can see I used several purple rectangles to set off the embellishments nicely.  Here are a couple more examples of using scraps:
This one makes use of a decorative striped paper cut in such a way that it also served as a mat for the flowers.
And here's an example of a slightly larger piece of decorative paper that works great as a mat for this tag, tying the colors of the tag together with the background.

Cheryl--I love the topic of your posting! You have been very thoughtful and purposeful with your postings and paper-crafting. My favorite card in this post is the 3rd/bottom one. I just love the painted swirls paper from HOTP! You have done a great job coordinating the colors and textures for this featured card!
