Shopping our Stash #96 - Not Your Normal Paper!


First things first before I forget - LIFE being busy, this Shopping our Stash challenge will run for 2 weeks! And what is it exactly we want you to use this time around?

This week we ask you to use Not Your Normal Paper. By that we mean we'd like you to go into your stash and find that hoarded specialty paper - something  you had to have. Some examples are glitter paper, honeycomb paper, corrugated paper (or crimp your own), canvas, cork, etc.; or use book pages, newspapers, wrapping paper ... you get the idea.

I've gone with canvas - I was pulling out all sorts of sheets of specialty paper, and got so overwhelmed by it all that I put it away! I'll be playing along with this challenge again for sure.
Supplies: cream canvas; stickers (butterfly & label) from Kaisercraft); sticker sentiment from Mrs. Grossman's; doily from Wilton

This Shopping our Stash challenge is open until Monday April 15th
Don't forget to visit my teamies - a few are taking some well-deserved time off!

Lovely card, Jessi, and indeed a fun challenge! The butterfly is gorgeous and I think the card has pretty texture in real life, right? Looks great from the photo already! Great use of the doily as well! A beauty!!
