Shopping our Stash #119 - Your Oldest Flower

**If you are here for my Tuesday Morning Sketches post, sorry! My stamps didn't arrive in time but I will be playing along as soon as they get here!**

So, here's what should be an easy stash-buster for a lot of us - this week at Shopping our Stash we want you to use your oldest flower embellishments OR your oldest floral stamp. 

I went for embellishments - some tiny Primas:


Not sure there's much point in listing supplies for this one, since most of the sources are 'from my stash' - the heart was sketched in pencil & cut out, the doily I scavenged from underneath my salad at a restaurant, the paper? 

If you click to view full-size, you can see I've layered some of the blooms, so I used 6 out of the approximately 180 flowers left in the box of 250. 

Come & play along with this challenge until next Monday,September 23rd - hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!


xoxo,
Jessi

Beautiful combination of the white and kraft, Jessi! That doily just look lovely on the with the polkas and the heart shape and not forgetting the old flowers!

My kids will give me a kind of look everytime I try to scavenge the doily from the restaurant too!
