It's Monday again and time for another challenge at Whoopsi Daisy.  This week we want to see you 'Use Up Your Stash'.  So have a root around in your neglected stash and join in the fun, you might be suprised what you turn up.

Well, apart from the base card/stamps everything on my card was made from scraps lying on my work area and some neglected lace I found while re-organising all my lace.

To start my card I decided to follow the great sketch as it looked fun.  The gorgeous paper is from the new collection called 'Petal Fresh' at Nitwit Collections and has fast become a favourite of mine.  I added a punched border using D/S tape and sprinkled glitter all over it to get a blingy effect.  I coloured this gorgeous, sweet image with promarkers before distressing the edges and layering her onto a terracotta mat.  I did the same with the sentiment.  The butterflies are punched with pearl bodies.  The flowers are individual daisies cut from daisy lace which I came across already loose.  I also coloured these with a promarker and added aqua gems to the centres.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
