Why oh why… did I buy THAT!?! If you’re like me, you have a lot of embellishments that don’t get used. Most of it was collected from when I was just getting hooked and I had to have it all but couldn’t afford it… so I went to the dollar hot spots. Yup… I have some REALLY “fancy” ribbon that was on clearance…. And sometimes I splurged without thinking it through… like on the primas that I never use. I know, I know. Primas are great…. But shades of mustard??? What was I thinking? LOL!
Or maybe you didn’t buy the unloved embellishments but received them as gifts. You were oh so thankful… while you were thinking, “How am I going to use THESE?” Yup… I have never used even one of my many flower eyelets… until today!
OK... If you’ve read this far, you get the idea of using unloved embellishments.
BUT…. That’s not all. I don’t want you to make any old card just to complete the challenge. You might end up looking at that card next week and dislike it as much as the embellishments. Everyone, well most everyone (Barb), loves and is immediately drawn to the floral cards. So, I want you to use your unloved embellishments on a card with flowers!!!!
Uploading: When uploading, please tell us which embellishments were unloved. And remember the keyword without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.
If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!
