Shopping Our Stash #25 - Chipboard OR Stickers OR Rub-ons

  I started cleaning up my work table and I came across this BasicGrey "Oliver" chipboard piece left over from a card kit (postage stamp-shaped journaling element.)  Rather than putting it away, I decided to make a card around it.  I shopped my stash in search of coordinating chipboard and rub-ons.  I happened upon a 6x6 BasicGrey "Origins" paper pad with a baggie of spare die cuts from a BasicGrey "Origins" card kit that I purchased in 2009.  I made the cards from the kit two years ago, but I saved the extra die cuts.

  For this challenge you can choose either chipboard OR rub-ons OR stickers; you don't have to use all three.  My sentiment is a BasicGrey rub-on, and the floral/branch accents are American Crafts rub-ons ("Accents book two".)  My chipboard element is also a sticker...do I get bonus points for that?  :)

  The scallop rectangle was cut from my Cricut "Elegant Edges" and the circle was cut from "Accent Essentials."  I used a black marker to add stitching on the circle and doodles to the little yellow flower die cut.

Happy Tuesday!
