Feels Like Spring

I am so excited because my card today is being featured on Use it Tuesday, which is a great challenge blog that encourages you to use your craft stash.

The theme this week was all about spring, and I couldn't wait to go through my horded supplies to make my card.

I have had the dark pink paper I used for the base for almost two years. The patterned paper was part of a prize package, and it is the only sheet I have, so I've been saving it. I even made a 6x6 card to make sure I used as much as possible. Here is a close-up of the paper. I thought it was perfect for the challenge!

I used pink and green twine, and both were unopened packages before I used them for this card. The "hello" stamp was un-inked, even though I've had that for more than a year. The star brad on the pinwheel was also from an unopened package I've had for about two years. The tag was cut from George and Basic Shapes on my Cricut.

Inside the card I added another pinwheel from the Create a Critter cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you join the fun at Use it Tuesday.
