Challenge Your Stash

It is the 28th and that means a new post for our group on SCS.  This is post #3 for Challenge Your Stash!

The premise is to create a card or something else that uses only items that are in your own stamp room--nothing new is to be purchased.  The hostess each month posts their challenge to the group by the 5th of the month and the card is due to be posted on the 28th.  The challenges can be a color challenge or a sketch challenge or a technique challenge or a combination.  Then, each person in the group creates their card with their own image, their own papers, their own embellishments with their own supplies--using up items from their own stash!  The card can be for any occasion and each person is encouraged to send the card on its way to someone so it can be admired.  It is a way for us to step out of the box a bit and create something that follows a challenge--isn't that what a challenge is supposed to be.  And--no money is spent as all items are to be already available in each of own stamping spaces.

Shelly posted our March challenge--a recipe.  Make a sympathy card, use some green on your card and embellish it with three of something.

I used a Gina K set, along with a set of Nestabilities for the frame that I have not used in a long time.  I also used a very old Stampin' Up designer series paper for the background--Porcelain Prints.  And the, three green candy dots on brads!

Here is the inside of my card:

If you check some of the blogs on my sidebar, you may find others who have posted their cards today.  There may be more posted in the thread on SCS, so you might want to check out the link here.  We also have a keyword for the SCS Gallery--it is CYSMAR.  You might see many cards there is you do a search.

I hope you enjoyed my card and I know I am excited to check out what my other hoarders, I mean stash reducers have made!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Barb this is a wonderful creation with great attention to detail. Love the colours and embellishments. All the elements work so well together.

Very pretty! I really love the sentiment tag and the DP you found in your stash! I love this group and the challenge to use older 'stuff' from our stash : )
