JAI #82 - Just Add Something From Your Stash

This weeks's challenge at Just Add Ink is to Add Something from Your Stash, preferably something you've not used before!  This was my idea and I found it extremely difficult as I was totally overwhelemed with options.  No real surprise there though, lol!

Anyway, this is what I came up with

It's based on a Make A Card Monday card by Kristina Werner.  The frame was so easy to do - I used my Martha Stewart Scoring Board - and it's so effective.

The paper is something I've had in my stash for at least 5 years.  It's so pretty and shimmery but I had never gotten around to using it.  The sentiment is from PTI and has been in my stash for well over 12 months without being used.  It's been embossed with White Embossing Powder. 

I really love how it's turned out and it's a design that I will be able to reproduce for the squillions of birthday cards that I need to make for September, and use some more of that unused DSP that is laying around in my stash.

I can't wait to see what you use from your stash for this week's challenge.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend

Supplies Used: 
Stamps:  Giga Guidelines (PaperTrey Ink)
Cardstock:  Bashful Blue (SU!), pretty paper from my stash - no idea who the manufacturer is
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories:  Embossing Buddy, White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Dimensionals (all from Stampin' Up!), Martha Stewart Scoring Board

The frame looks great around the dsp Jo. And great idea for a challenge, I had a lot to choose from too unfortunately.

That scored frame is really all the decoration the DSP needs Jo. I like the idea of using DSP scraps - I have plenty of those!!
