Use those supplies we all have!

I challenged myself to make a card that HAD to use the flowers you see in this card.

While I was at my friend Laurel’s house we were talking about our various crafting supplies we have and those we want {NEED wink wink}, as well as having things I have never even used yet, and I had mentioned purchasing these cute little flower embellishments and that I have never even used them. My crafting to do list this week I set a challenge for myself to make a card and use them!

I started with stamping the background image in Stampin UP Craft White on Kraft craft stock. {I heart Kraft} I wanted just a tiny border around the Kraft card stock to peek out.

I added dew drops to the centers of my flowers and set my bordered stamped image off slightly so I could embellish the side of my card with some very cute buttons!

How about you? Do you have supplies you have not used in awhile? Why don't you challenge yourself to use them in your next project?

Off to start another busy day!
