WHOOPS! Shopping Our STash Challenge!

Hello Hello!

I'm so sorry this post is late! I had it all set up and ready to go, then I came back in later to edit it, and forgot to reschedule it. I've been away from my PC for a few days so I didn't realise.

Here is the latest Shopping Our Stash Challenge:


Challenge 89 February 12:  Birthday theme- birthday card or layout, tag, etc.


Now the main stamp I used IS new (but I didn't buy it for this challenge, I was given it by a sweet sweet friend), and it was coloured with a birthday present that arrived the other day from my sweet darling Mary Dawn--Inktense pencils--they're so fun!
The sentiment stamp however, is about a million years old. (or thereabouts lol)


I thought about adding faux stitching or a matte, or about fifty five other things, but I'm liking the CAS look at the moment. A couple of golden rhinestones did the trick :)

Hope you like it!

Be sure to head over to SOS now, to check out the rest of the DT's amazing cards!! They're all fabulous as always :)

Thanks for stopping by!

LOVE this card. Must get this stamp. And you probably don't know this about me, but Kraft is my favorite. I must use it each and every time I make something. Ahem.
