Use It #2

Rae Barthel just started a new challenge blog called Use It! I first became aware of Rae's work when she was on the 2S4Y DT and have visited her blog occasionally ever since. I missed the first use it challenge but was determined to check out the blog again to participate. So here is my card for the week. The challenge was to use spring colors, a tag and 4 flowers. Also Danni of dannisdoodles was the host of the challenge. The flowers are table confetti from Pier One that I just had to have when I heard about them over at scrapjazz but in the at least two years since I bought them I have no used one. Well for this challenge I decided to change that and used al four flowers from there. I guess if I'm going to finally take the plunge and use one I should go all out. The emboridery floss like most I use is from my mother when she used to cross stitch and she has passed it on to me. It was great to get some older stuff moved in my stash but next time I'm going to chllenge myself to make sure I use older paper as well since this is still my more recent GCD Studios paper.
