Shopping Our Stash #97

Hello and happy Tuesday!  It's time for a great new challenge at Shopping Our Stash!  This week we want you to use your best $1 or bargain bin deal.  You know you love those bins near the checkout where everything is $1.  Why not use one of those fun finds on your project and share it with us this week?

I needed to make a baby card and while I was poking through my stash I found some fun stickers I had forgotten about!
First off I used this adorable vintage image from Saturday Finds.  It comes from the collection New Baby No. 11.  I just love vintage images and this one was perfect for the baby shower card I wanted to make.  I fussy cut the image around the eyelet border.
I inked the edges of the layers (including the image) with a dark burgundy ink.  I also stamped small flowers around the edges of the layers with the same color.  The rhinestone hands and feet are the sweet $1 find I snagged at Michaels probably 2 or 3 years ago.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid.  The beautiful pink rose trim is from Joanns and I added the pearl beads to the middle of each flower (also from my stash).
 The sticker set also included the word "BABY" which I added to the inside.  I used the same sketch as the front for the writing panel.
 All papers, including this one, are from MME.
I really love how this card turned out.  I hope the new mama does too!

I am entering my card in the challenge at:

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!
