Precious Paper

The theme of our challenge at Shopping Our Stash is MY PRECIOUS!  Now, you may ask what we mean by that - well......for our challenge this week we'd like for you to use something you've hoarded that you've NEVER planned to actually use!  Maybe this is a piece of paper (like mine), a special embellishment, a piece of ribbon, or that gorgeous piece of lace you love looking at but don't want to use!  Whatever it is that you have in your stash, come on and use it and enter our challenge!


I used this piece of paper I won in some blog candy from Linda.  It comes from a paper pack from Crafty Individuals (Trees).  I really hated to add anything to it, but went with a flower I punched out and sprayed with some Glimmer Mist to give it a little shine and and a Thinking of You sentiment - along with a scrap of lavender ribbon.   I'll be sending this to a very special lady that just turned 89 years old last week - and of course I missed her birthday!

Come on over and enter out challenge at Shopping Our Stash - and be sure and check out all the fabulous creations from the Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by............and I'll be back in a minute with my post for {Pin}spirational Challenges.

I'd be hoarding that paper, too! But if I have to use it, it would go into a card just like yours for someone really special. I love that you used just one flower embellishment and that wisp of sheer ribbon. Too elegant!
