Card to Scrap Layout

I have often been asked why I do cards at a workshop, and not scrap layouts.  My answer to that was, you can turn any card into a scrap layout.  Its the same technique, and idea.  Here are 3 ideas that I used.

Firstly I have to thank my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators for there swap cards at Regionals Melbourne 2011.
Thank you Lisa Jalocha (Melbourne) for this wonderful idea.

 This is my scrap layout, following the same stamp idea, stamp set and colours.

                  Happiest B'day Wishes 122617

       Melon Mambo
       Pear Pizzazz

                     On board No. 2
                     Builder a Wheel and Lge Jumbo handle.

Secondly I would like to thank Kylie Slane - guest of Rachael Hecker at the Melbourne Regionals, for this lovely swap, and great idea.

Third and last one is using my favourite stamp set French Foliage.  Thank you to a demonstrator in the US for her wonderful card idea.
I cased this card, to the best of my ability, and turned it also into a layout.
 I just love this Stamp Set, you can use it for so many ideas. Who would think you could have used for a 11 year girl in a scrap layout.
