Papertake Weekly - new beginnings or new stash!!!

WEll, I made it through Monday, and gosh almighty was it ever Monday! I'm just really glad the day is over and we've moved on to Tuesday. And that means it's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly! This week, the challenge is to use your new stash ! FUN! The challenge is being sponsored by The Stamping Boutique, and they graciously gave the DT some fun images to play with. I chose this adorable little girl called Audrey's new dress. I fell in love with her immediately!

So what new stash did I use...let's see....the paper is new, that beautiful glittery brad in the center of the bow is from my new stash. Oh! And I used a brand new Martha Stewart border punch, too! See that adorable LOVE BUG border? That's new too, and from a new stamp set from The Cutting Cafe' called Valentine Long Phrases. I can tell you I will probably be using the heck out of this one! It's got a ladybug on it!! LOL! I messed up on my card though. After I was done gluing everything together, I realized I should have put a black mat under the main red mat, but it was too late. SIGH! Don't you just HATE it when that happens?? It would have added a LOT more oomph to the card. Oh well....such is life. Anyway, please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to see the rest of the DT fabulous creations. Then grab your paper, glue, and all your new goodies you've been dying to use, and join us in the challenge. Who knows...you might get lucky and win a prize from The Stamping Boutique! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon. HUGS!
