Shopping Our Stash #29 - Light and/or White

  I used some really old stash for this cute card!  The wavy corrugated paper has been in my stash for 10+ years, and I used a scrap of red polka dot (*I think*) is BoBunny small dot from 2005.  To recreate this card I could also use October Afternoon  Modern Homemaker, Jillibean Soup Blossom Soup, Jillibean Soup Homemade,  Echo Park For the Record, Echo Park Happy Days, Echo Park Play Ground, or Echo Park Dots & Stripes Christmasmy lovely friend Court used Imaginisce Santa's Little Helper (see Court's cute card here.)

  My bird is cut from My Mind's Eye Abbey Road (2009).  I hoard that paper, but I am sure I could find something in either their Lime Twist or Lost and Found 2 collections.

  What's in your stash?  Shop your stash and create something light (think candles, fireplaces, Christmas lights) or mostly white and link your creation at Shopping Our Stash.  I'll see you there :)

Other supplies:
Cricut cartridge:  3 Birds on Parade p.44, cut @ 3"
sentiment:  My Pink Stamper Winter Treats & Sayings
stickles:  red and green (on lights)
yellow card stock: scrap from XPEDX

Happy Tuesday!
