Paperplay - "something old from your stash!"

This week's Paperplay Challenge is set by the super talented Julie.  She says "it's easy to be seduced by all the lovely new products, but this challenge is to use something very old from your stash.  Could be the first papers you loved and didn't want to cut into, or what were cutting edge embellishments.  Drag them out and use them!!!" - she is right!!!
I used a paper stack that has been in my stash for a while - Cosmo Cricket Earth Love and cut into it!.  I machine stitched around the edge and added tiny beads from Rayher called papillon because of their shape (think I may have picked these up on holidays in France a while back!!).  I adhered them to the centres of the dandelion seed puffs with glossy accents.  I then added a chipboard shape from the same range by Cosmo Cricket.  Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you get a chance to dig out some of those long forgotten papers/embellies/buttons/ribbons and use them this week.
