Using the stash




I'll admit that I am kind of a paper hoarder. It's just so pretty I hate to cut it up.  (Yes, I see many of you nodding. You know what I mean).
This project uses tons of pretty papers that had already been cut. Yup, good-sized snippets all from the same pack. The edges of the long strips are inked in a mustard color and the yellow square is edged in orange. This is the Mojo sketch for this week, and I like that each of the three strips are shown a different width.
 For the central panel, I used some coordinating printed chipboard from my stash to complete this card. Really, I need to do this stash thing more often. 

This card is for these challenges:
Mojo Monday #459 -- sketch
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday -- fabulous florals
Scribbles Design Challenge #43 -- How does your garden grow?
Pixie's Snippet Playgournd #240 -- use snippets
Word Art Wedcnesday #242 -- anything goes
Kraftin Kimmie's Wonderful Wednesday -- anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's patterned Paper Challenge -- use patterned paper
