Wishin and Hopin

Remember that song "wishin and hopin"....
well that is what I am, Wishing and Hoping for SPRING!!
Which brings me to my card....a bit of Springtime!!

This week the challenge at "Shopping Our Stash" is "shiney.....
I love this challenge as it makes me dig into  my monster "pile"  "stash"
 and use some things up!!

I pulled out this long ago stamped image, maybe 3 or 4 years ago....
so simple, but so pretty!
I added  a "vellum" overlay   which I think has been in my stash for at least a year!!
The pine branch is an IO die, one I cut for Christmas but didn't use..

The bow is made with ribbon I just won from Craft-Dee BowZ
it is one of my "shiney" items along with the gems on my branch!!
It came together rather quickly with all the supplies right at my finger tips!!

Entering this into the following challenges:

This is just fabulous Diane! What a great use of precut, precolored stash! (BTW I have that stamp too ... I'd have to blow the dust off it to use it ... but thanks for inspiration). Love the vellum overlay ... just an all around beautiful creation! Great job!
