Shopping Our Stash

Hi friends!

here with another Shopping Our Stash challenge inspiration for ya!

This week we want to see you use:

Flower Power- Use your handmade or 3-d flowers!  (your project can include stamped images but it also needs to have at least one flower that is either handmade or a 3-d flower you bought.  Think Wild Orchid Crafts, puffy stickers, Primas, etc.)

So I chose to use one of my OOOOOOOOOOOOLD flowers from Prima. Its at least two-three years old (which is when I started crafting, so...it's about as old as it gets for me!)

I love this flower. it's over the top and kinda gaudy, but totally unapologetic. Reminds me of Maggie Smith's character in Downton Abbey (anyone else obsessed with that show?!)

I digress.

Anyhoo, I used Lawn Fawn for the background, Hero Arts for teh sentiment :)

Nice and simple, and CLASSY. :)

Hope you like!

Please pop over to the blog to see the rest of the DT's work!

See you again soon!

I LOVE how you described it - gaudy but unapologetic. That is AWESOME! As is that crazy funky flower! As for Downton Abbey, I have been 3rd on the waitlist for the second season for 2 months. I'm thinking of hacking into the system to find out who has it, and going to get it myself ;) I love that show!

My first thought was that flower belongs on the hat of an old lady (well, that might be me, if I wore hats) or as a brooch. And yes, PERFECT for the Downton Abbey Matriarch!
