To You From Me

Yesterdays card was a small square card,
today's card is making up for it as it is quite larger,
approx 5" x 6 1/4"

Besides the new die for this card, I used some really, really OLD stash!

One of the 'oldies' is the white linen paper I used to feature
my Tutti Designs Butterfly Vine Border.
I used a stitched border die (turned it on it's side), 
then a scrap (snippet) of dotted paper to go with.

A couple of the other 'oldies are the SU sentiment from the
Best Yet stamp set, not sure of the age, but it retired in '09'!
The little gem strips on the butterfly are from an Easter Egg deco
kit from SU purchased eons ago and of course never used as intended!

I die cut a few 'free' butterflies to finish!

A pretty card for the snippets challenge - it is great to use up some of the older stash (makes room for more new)

Don't you receive the greatest pleasure from using "old stash"? I enjoy it immensely. There's a never ending supply of "old stash" in my life LOL

Your card is beautiful, Diane, in the monochromatic theme, and happily bejeweled butterflies! xx

Pretty, pretty! Love the colors and the design with the curve and all your fabulous old supplies. I'd probably be hoarding that linen paper. We probably all have more of everything than we'll ever use, but it sure is fun trying!
