Taking a Break from Patriotic Papers

Hi, everyone!

I've been thinking about this week's Shopping Our Stash challenge to use something soft... trying to come up with something other than my standard go-to ribbon/twine/tulle. And, then I remembered that piece of linen stashed away with my 12 by 12 papers. Turns out I even had some negative dies that made perfect star and wave stencils.... and some garage sale brads to secure the linen to the background cardstock. Now, that's what I call shopping my stash!  :)

Recollection linen; Bazzill admiral
Distress Ink chipped sapphire and fried brick applied with SU daubers
negative dies used as stencils; garage sale brads
Not sure if this will be an Any Hero card or a generic greeting card. But, either way, it's headed to Operation Write Home.

Parting Thoughts

Looking forward to having our dads out on Father's Day.  :)

There's still time left to play along with our June Oh, The Places You'll Go challenge at Words 2 Scrap By.

See you on Sunday. Until then, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
