Using Up "My Stash"

I really wanted to make a second entry for the challenge at Mark's Finest Papers Challenge Blog but I was very limited as to my black and white patterned paper selection.  So, I had to dig into my old stash of papers.  It's a stack of mis-matched paper that I tend to ignore pretty much.  But I'm so glad that I dug out these two black and white patterned papers.  I like how they worked together.  I really tried to keep it simple.  The bicycle stamp is from Prima, and the sentiment is from Unity Stamp Company.  Ink is Ranger, ribbon and brads are from Michaels.  That's about all I used.

Here are the links to the challenges I'm entering with this little stamped card that I made while "using my stash" of patterned papers.

  8. Using up my stash is my mission for 2012, so I definitely dig this creation! It's amazing how easily your supplies can pile up. There's always something new, fun or just cute at the stores that you want to use. You buy it, then it doesn't get used. What's up with that?

    Happiness,
