Awesome Sauce

This is my card for the January Challenge Your Stash group on SCS.  This is our 13th month of de-stashing--we are now starting year #2!

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 and the card is due to be posted on the 28th. 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.

Jeanette posted our January challenge--Use at least 3 different designer papers on your card.

I first picked out the designer paper, which is not my typical plan. I used a Stampin' Up small patterned paper pack that I do not think I have used before.  When I saw the bright colors, I knew I needed to look for a sentiment stamp that reflected this.  The Project Bin has some great sentiment stamps and I think this one is perfect!   I think I did dig into my stash for this card!

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 or in the next day or so.  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 CYSJAN.  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!  For February, Tracie is up and we already know her challenge.  Be sure to check back to see what we create for the start of our second year!
