CCT#146 - Out with the Old!!

Phew - back to normal now after all the madness, although I have to say DS going back to school on the same day as DH went back to work yesterday was a bit harsh!!

This week on Cute Card Thursday we want to see your old stash - and if, like me, you have resolved to use some of it a bit more then this is the challenge for you!!

I have used a piece of my precious Japanese Washi papers to make this oriental style card. I have had these papers now for nearly four years and I can only bring myself to cut into about one a year they are so gorgeous!! Asian Tilda has been coloured with Promarkers, Copics, Polychromos Pencils and Sakura Souffle pens (I don't make it easy for myself eh??!!) I used an SU punch to make the flowers and made the centres with these gorgeous fabric brads I've had for ages that came from Poppicrafts (gosh I miss that shop!!). An old tassle from Joanna Sheen, a sentiment from Craftwork Cards and a little charm finish it off.

We've got another great prize from our regular sponsor The Stamp Shoppe up for grabs for one lucky participant and as always the DT have come up with some crackers so why not dig out your old stash and join in??!!
