Creative Accents August Challenge

Here we are again time for another Challenge over at Creative Accents Challenges
For the month of August it is Use Your Stash..



We all have stuff we have hardly used or maybe even not used. ( I could not imagine that) or it's been a while since we pulled it out or even a tech. we haven't used in some time.

So crafty people  get looking through your stash and see what you can come up with.

Here is what I managed to find (and to tell the truth is wasn't hard once I started going through stuff)
When I bought my Big Shot I got a nice package (sweet deal) and it had a lot of additions.  I had cut this butterfly once and had it sitting there looking at me for the longest time saying its about time you used me... My thoughts were how and where to use this.  It is meant to be a album or book cover but that is not what it was saying to me. 

Here is my Card -- Easel Card that is.  I used TH Distress  Inks to do the shading-- embossed a back ground stamp that has been in my drawer calling to me--with Kaleidoscope powder-- Some flowers and some Stickles ...
The inside of the card
I had to visit Barb (Mrs. T) for the saying stamps Cornish Heritage (she had not used these yet herself :>)) also borrowed her butterfly punch (she has used this a fair bit) and the branch is also from when I bought the Big Shot as well (did I tell you I got a sweet package).

Now you all get busy and see what you have hid away in your craft central...
So looking forward to see what you come up with.. and get it posted (sure to be some candy involved)
Now be sure to check out some of the other design team members and see what lovely stuff they have managed to do as well.
I to will be having some Blog Candy here soon.. It has been just over 1 year that I have been in Blogland and their are over 8,000 views to see what I have done.. THANK YOU...

Take Care thanks for stopping by... Comments are always treasured.  Have a great day.
