Shopping our Stash #138 - ohhhh, Shiny!


Shimmer, shine, sparkle....that's what we want to see this week at Shopping our Stash! 

true story.
Being the overachiever that I am, I made two cards. Mostly because I had punched so many circles that I was determined to use them up, but still.

Supplies: stamps from Annabelle Stamps; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Barn Door distress ink; Bic markers; Stampendous yellow fun flock; googly eyes; American Crafts yellow & scarlet glitter; Martha Stewart crystal glitter; miscellaneous scraps of card stock & glitter paper; black rhinestones from Dollarama


I added some yellow flocking to the bee, because bees are so soft...and dangerous....but soft :) I've also used loose glitter on the flower centres, heart, bouquet wrap,  and the bee's wings.
