Welcome to the Serendipity Blog Challenge! For this post the Serendipity Design Team has been challenged to create a project using supplies that have been around for "ages". What great motivation for a little spring cleaning! You know it, and I know it - we all have a little stash of supplies that we can't seem to part with!
For my card I started with this beautiful embossed hydrangea. You don't have to color a stamp to make it look fantastic - a little gold embossing powder works wonders! We all have a bottle of embossing powder laying around - when is the last time you heated some up? The pretty background paper is from K&Co. This was some of the first paper I bought when I started paper crafting years ago. I fell in love with its pretty pattern, thick texture and embossed finish. It has been waiting forever to see the light of day and wind up on a project. While I was rummaging around I found a brand new package of multi colored corrugated paper! The metallic blue ribbon was in my stash of ribbon and wrap for Christmas, and the gold foil paper I've had for a while as well. In fact I think the only thing new on this card is the Hydrangea stamp, plain card stock and the twine!
I found some Spellbinder dies I had stashed away while I was spring cleaning. Since May is my blogversary month I'm offering them up as blog candy. One random commenter on this post will receive these dies. Last day to comment for the prize is 5-23-12. You will also be entered to win in my blogversary package. So... Leave a comment!
