Happy Monday! What a crazy morning it's been so far - went for a 5 mile bike ride, finished my workout, caught up on some "housekeeping" things, and here I am! Have some more running around to do this afternoon before work this evening, but first I want to share with you a card I made for this week's Use What You Have challenge over at Sweet Stamp Shop!
This is my first time really playing along in the challenge, and I had so much fun! It's basically an anything goes challenge, as long as you use what you have in your stash and take a picture of it!
This was one of the FIRST paper pads when I first started scrapping two summers ago. I wanted some basic patterned papers to play with, and this seemed to do the trick. Now, it pretty much goes untouched since I've learned about all the different papers there are, so I thought it would be fun to pull it out for this challenge and give it some much-needed love!
I searched through my scrap stash to find the matching polka dot papers from that particular collection, and off I went!
Here's what I made! This card is inspired by a card on Pinterest I pinned a LONG time ago, so not only did I go through my physical stash, but my Pinterest stash of inspiration as well! I cut the vellum envelope using my Cameo, then used a hole punch to punch a ton of pieces of each color paper. Most went in the envelope, but others are scattered on the card to make it look like the confetti is being shaken out of the envelope. The 'Congrats' stamp is from Sweet Stamp Shop's 'Simple Sentiments' set. Wow, that was a lot of S's! Try saying that three times fast. :)
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be sure to be playing along in these challenges as much as possible. :)
