Dragging Out Some Stash!

     Wow... where ever did I find this paper collection?  It is an old K & Co pad called Madeline, by Brenda Walton!  It is gorgeous paper, but I had no clue I still had pieces of it.  I combined all of the pieces of double sided papers to create my front panel, including the double circles, cut with Gina Marie stitched circles.

     I stamped some flowers, using the Flower Shop SU! set and matching punch.  the ink was Melon Mambo, with Distress ink lightly applied.  My leaves were die cut with more dp from the pad, and tucked around the edges.  Found a piece of this plum stitched ribbon laying on my desk.... It came from a gift I recently received.  As for the sentiment, it was also included in the pad.  I punched centers for my flowers and topped them with glossy accents.

     This will be entered in the newest challenge over at Your Next Stamp.  It is #65 to be exact.  You have a choice of sketch, colors, or both.  I chose the sketch!

     Well, here we are at Tuesday, already!  It just does not seem possible.  We had some peek of sun, over the weekend.  That made us all feel a wee bit less mildewed.  Seems we are back into the gloomies today!  Thanks for the visit.

THis is such pretty paper, I agree, and I love what you've done with it! The ribbon is cool with the stitching too and reminds me of one of my old SU! favs - purely pomegranate! Way to use your stash!

Oh what a gorgeous card, Mary Anne! Love the design and that wonderful paper! I kinda think I have some of that paper floating around my craft too! I will check on that! This looks lovely with those beautiful flowers, too! Totally love this! TFS We actually had a beautiful sunny day here yesterday but today the gloom & doom have set back in. Good day to stay in bed with the covers pulled up!
