Using some hand crafted paper!

I am sure if you are the same as me you have an extensive collection of gathered items over the years - quite a lot of them will be connected to paper supplies!.  I recently came across a sheet of this beautiful handcrafted paper in my wrapping paper container (have had it for at least 10 years!) and decided to use it to make a card to match packaging for a friend's birthday.  I think I got it at Paper Source but could be wrong!... it was quite a while ago!.

I matched the flower centres with a sheet of AC Cardstock.  Cut feathers with my new fave dies - Die-namics Feathers and Arrows.

Used some white ribbon from and a button from my stash.  I machine stitched the paper to the card base and hey presto - card done!  Imagine - no stamping!

Thanks for peeking.

Love this, Dee - my daughter had a little blue pvc bag with yellow straps and a daisy on the front years ago and looking at this card just brings me right back!! Great to use up old stash too, isn't it?!!

Apologies for the long drought in commenting, now the summer is nearly here, I intend to pop round all my favourite blogs much more often!
