Shopping my Stash with the letter B...

Oh boy :) Last post today, I promise! Had to make time to play over at Shopping our Stash since I haven't in a few weeks....this time it's to make something that includes stash that starts with the letter B. How wide open is that? The challenge linky expires Monday at midnight, so hurry up & play along!

I went with butterflies & bling as my letter B items:

Supplies: Spellbinders butterfly dies;
silver paint pen; butterfly embossing folder; bling from dollar store
This was a huge stashbuster card - no idea where the grey patterned paper is from, but there was exactly enough to cut 3 butterflies (one to spare for the envelope!). The bling body & trail finished off a package of swirls, the silver paint pen hasn't been out to play in for-e-ver, and neither had the embossing folder. (Pats self on back). That's why I love the SOS challenges so much - I make a point of USING instead of hoarding (but don't worry, I still hoard. It's not a personality switch! lol)

*One more for the Anything Goes challenge over at Simon Says Stamp - seriously, if you haven't gone over there already, GO! What are you waiting for???*

xoxo,
Jessi

Beautiful butterflies, Jessi. Send them back when you done with them. I think they escaped from my garden.
