Shopping Our Stash #119

Hello friends and Happy Tuesday!!  It's time for another stash-busting challenge at Shopping Our Stash!  This week we want you to pull out your oldest flowers to add to your card creation.  I immediately knew which ones I would grab...
First off, I used this adorable image from Wee Stamps.  She is called Wee Florist and can be found in Sylvia's store.  Her images are so sweet and I always love coloring them with my Prismacolor pencils.
 I used paper from Lost and Found 2 by MME.  I love their paper and the floral one here is probably one of my favorites.  I inked and sewed all the edges.  The pearl flourish gave me a bit of trouble....it stuck to me, the table, itself....hence its ragged appearance!  The seam binding and lace are from my stash.  The flowers are "silk" ribbon roses from 20+ years ago.  And they are far from silk.  I used to use so many of these in my craft show days.  I still have one small bag of them.  I used 12 of them on this card!!
 The inside shows off that great paper again!
There you have.  That was pretty painless!  Now it's your turn.  Dig into your stash and join us this week!  And make sure you tell us what you used from your stash!!

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

Blessings & Hugs,
