Use Old Stash Challenge March

Hello everyone,

I hope you had a good weekend and feel refreshed for the week ahead. I have been raiding my stash again for items I either haven't used for a long time, or haven't used at all. I'm quite proud that I am keeping my New Year resolution to use more of my old stash and for my March challenge I found some lace and decided to try that, along with some of my mountain of design paper. I'm going to play along with the Playdate Cafe challenge for the first time and this was to use black and white with a splash of colour.

I can't tell you what the paper is as it has lost its label, but I embelished some of the flowers on it with some fine glitter. The focal panel was stamped with the floral image from Papertrey Ink With Sympathy stamp set and I used the rosebud for my flash of red colour, before mounting it onto Nestabilities Labels Four die cuts. The sentiment is also PTI and it is mounted onto Nestabilities Fancy Tags die cut.

I am also going to enter this card in the challenges at Papertake Weekly challenge and Clear It Out challenge
