Shopping Our Stash #79 - Odds & Ends

Hello, hello!  It's Tuesday!  Time to dig into your stash and join us for a fun new challenge over at Shopping Our Stash!  This week we want to see you use your odds and ends.  You know, that one button left on the card or the last 6" of ribbon, your last 2 pearls, anything like that!!  Clear out that stash!

This week I used another fun image from iralamija on etsy called New Yuletide Tags.  These images are wonderful, I am having so much fun playing with them!
 I used the sketch over at CLP Challenge Blog again.  I love the sketches, they are always so pretty!  The DP is from MME.  I have used it several times and when I was at Hobby Lobby the other day I picked up a couple more sheets.  It truly is one of my favorites!  OK  my odds and ends?  That deep red seam binding?  Didn't know I had it.  It was in one of my sewing boxes and I found it when I was putting away my new stash.  Those 2 pieces were all that were left on the card.  The dark pink, pink, white and tan roses were the last of their kind.  The vintage lace was also the last bit.  Those 3 jingle bells were the last small ones I had so I figured they needed to stay together!  That trim on the gingham panel is new.  It jumped in my cart at Hobby Lobby the other day!
Here's the inside.  I used a MS border punch for the gingham strip on the left.  And I used the same sketch for the writing panel.

So, there you have it.  Won't you dig into your stash and join us this week??
