Flash Back Friday- Using Flowers

I'm feeling quite proud of myself today! Since summer vacation began last week, I have managed to go through the girls' closet (got rid of 6 bags of clothes), went through a few storage containers and eliminated 2 of them, AND even found time to be crafty!!! While I was doing my mini cleaning spree, I came across a plastic shoe box container with silk/fabric flowers in it.  I have not used most of these in ages and thought they would be the perfect supplies for my new resolution to use up some of my 'stash'.

So here it is... My first Flash Back Friday Creation...

I decided that in keeping with the 'out with the old' trend, I would pull out some retired DSP to work with as well.  This is Tea Party, a very retired pack from Stampin' UP.  I used an old Page Maps card sketch to create the layout of the card (I actually use those a lot, so it's not really anything new...)

So here is the recipe for my card:
Cardstock-so saffron, pretty in pink, Ink- basic gray, Stamp Set- Curly Cute, Other-scallop trim border punch, Flash Back Items-Tea Party DSP, fabric flowers

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and find some time to be crafty!!
