Use It Up - Using Stash - Embellishments

Here's another card made with stash I've had around for awhile.  It started with a focal that I had made for a challenge some time ago - stamp with white pigment ink on dark paper and then color with chalks.  This one also has some Stickles to add some glitz. 

I was focused this time on using embellishments, so I found these pretty holly brads that I'd had for awhile, and some Christmas labels I wanted to use. 

I had cut out the red lattice with a die I have from Cheery Lynn and glued it to the white card base.  I cut the label in half, put half on either side of the focal, and added the brads.  A bit of ribbon finishes it off.

It's interesting to note what a difference a little thing like a ribbon bow can make on a card.  Compare my finished card to this one without the bow - it just somehow doesn't feel complete!

wonderful! I love how you did the background patterning--it's cute and really helps highlight the focal!!!
