Spring Cleaning Time

The new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is called CLEAN IT OUT.  We want you to make vintage or shabby chic cards or other paper-crafted projects using items from your stash and scraps.  We don't want you to go out and buy anything new.

I decided to add to my Christmas card pile and made this card out of bits and pieces.  The image was a freebie from The Funkie Junkie.  The background paper was printed last year from a digital freebie (Cuddlebeez - no longer online) but I ended up using something else.  The ribbon from Fabricland has been hanging out in my sewing closet for a few years and the burlap came from an old project.  The poinsettia was cut from scraps of paper using a Marianne Creatables die while the flourish was cut from a scrap of card stock using the Spellbinders Venetian Motifs die.  The sentiment was computer generated, cut with a Nellie Snellen die and then inked with some Aged Mahogany Distress ink (Ranger).

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Our Creative Corner - Anything Goes
C.R.A.F.T. - Christmas
Charisma Cardz  - No Digis Allowed
Milk Coffee Challenge - Shabby Chic/Vintage
