Shopping Our Stash #66

Hi Everyone, I have been wanting to play along with the challenges at Shopping Our Stash for quite a while now but life seems to keep getting in my way.  So today is my day to start.  For this week's challenge they have asked us to use our favorite things on our cards.  So that is exactly what I did.
I started with a Whisper White card base and then added some plaid paper that I purchased at The Christmas Tree Shop last year.
My Favorites things are:
This green striped paper (I'm not sure who it is by)
Scallop Shaped Items
The Wavy Edge Trimmer
Matting with black card stock
The green paper had the negative of a scallop circle in it that I had previously punched from it so I started there. I matted it with black card stock, then stamped my greeting in Versa Mark and embossed it with Detail White embossing powder.  I picked out the green and purple glittered flowers (another favorite which I tend to hoard) and arranged then to form more scallops.  I then added a white paper flower with a green felt center topping that off with a silver brad.    So I think my card meets the requirements for this week.
I enjoyed making this card even though I hated using that last scrap of this green striped paper.   Well I just hope some recipient will like it as much as I do.      Hopefully I will be able to start playing along with SOS every week now.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll see you again soon.


  1. Donna - I'm so glad you joined us at SOS this week and that you stopped by my blog. Thanks so much for that :) This card is great! Scallops are wonderful. They make me think of little girl clothes for some reason :) Love the flower you put together. Adds just the right amount of bling! Hope to see you again at SOS.

  2. I think this is so pretty and I love the combination of the green with the purple! The flower in the bottom is so sparkly and pretty and the sentiment is perfect! Beautifully done!

  3. You put so much thought into the process of making this card, and the fact that it includes so many favorites of yours makes it all the more special! I absolutely LOVE that 3D flower, and I used to have a scrap of the same green striped dsp too! I used mine though :)
