Shopping Our Stash #128

Hello friends!  I am so glad you are here today!  I always love when you stop by and leave a comment! Today I have a card for another fun challenge at Shopping Our Stash.  It's truly a fun one this time!  This time we want to see you use packaging from a product on your creation!  Fun, right??

Let me show you what I came up with!
OK How cute is she??  I simply love the images by Sylvia Zet at Wee Stamps.  This sweetie is called Holly and she was so much fun to color with my Prismacolor pencils.
 I used some papers from MME that weren't Christmas-y but they are sparkly and I think they work really well!  I added a small sentiment, pearls and jingle bells from my stash strung on some pearl cotton which is also from my stash.  I was a stitcher long before I was a paper-crafter.  I created the snowflake with a Spellbinders die and the packaging from a box of tea.  My Katie and I go through a lot of tea!  I cut the snowflake, coated it with Glossy Accents and sprinkled on extra fine glitter.
On the inside I added another snowflake I made.  I also stamped this great holly stamp from Inkadinkadoo.  I think it works rather well!

So, there you have it!  Now it's your turn!  Dig into your stash, find some packaging to use and join us this week!

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

Blessings & Hugs,
