Paper Craft Weekend Challenge- Use Your Stash

This past Saturday's challenge over at the Paper Craft Weekend Challenge Blog was to use your stash. I liked this one because I actually got out some stuff I haven't used in a while.
The card base is  41/4" by 51/2" dark brown paper that was in my scrap folder.The polka dot paper is cut 1/4" smaller than the brown base  and is from My Mind's Eye Stella Rose collection. The striped paper in the center is the back of the polka dot paper. A piece of cream card stock was punched with the Martha Stewart Arched Lattice border punch and placed under the striped paper. The ribbon is Vintage Vanilla crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot. The stamp is from an old set, which unfortunately, no longer had the company's name on it. It was stamped with Versa Magic Chalk Ink, Tea Leaves. The entire image was then embossed with two coats of UTEE. It was placed on a slightly larger piece of  green print paper, also from my scraps, then this was placed on another slightly large piece of cream card stock. This was then added to a brown  scalloped rectangle cut from a small Nestability. It is adhered to the card with Dimensionals from Stampin Up. The flourish is cut from the Cricut E2  Cricut Essentials cartridge. The pearls are from Recollections.
There's still time to create and post to the challenge blog if you'd like. They also had some great tips for organizing your stash . This was a fun challenge and it made me realize that I really need to use more of what I have. Maybe I'll make that a New Year's resolution, not to buy anything for a while but to use what I have. Yeah right!
Thanks for stopping by!

This card is gorgeous! It's hard to wrong with Stella & Rose. I have to stop myself from using it over and over and over again.
