What's in Your Stash

Woohoo, it is Wednesday and we are already half way to the weekend again. We are also at the start of another ABC Christmas Challenge and this time the theme is
U for Unused Stash

We have been sponsored this time around by the Simon Says Stamp who have offered up a $15 voucher to spend in the store.

and also by a wonderful new sponsor Bugaboo Stamps who are offering 7 of their fun digis for a second lucky participant.

Instead of my regular spot on the ABC Christmas Blog you will find me today over on the Bugaboo site. They have provided our DT with some of their great images to use for our cards.

Before I get to my card I will show you my unused stash. It is not that old as not that much sits around without a little getting used pretty quick. The MME Meadowlark papers were a deal that I found two weeks ago and the stamps arrived in the mail just this week.

The Bugaboo image that I chose to work with is called Ruby Christmas Present Stack and I had a blast colouring her. I have embellished the image with a whole wack of glitter and she really sparkles but what's a girl without a little bling right?

I love how all of the black, white and red combo really make all of the other colours in the image pop so I have kept the card pretty simple adding only the sentiment and the large layered snowflake for embellishment.

I hope that you will join us for the challenge. Do be sure to stop by both the ABC Challenge Blog and the Bugaboo blog to see what the DT and our guests have created to inspire you.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:

Hi Carissa, thank you for the nice warm welcome. I just adore those sentiments. Great use of some new items you've gotten! Great layers on your card and I love the "candy cane" feel to it! The colors do "pop" in the image! Gorgeous card.
