So then to the Challenge this time
U for Un used Stash… we all like to hoard stash right?
well Hmmm not me it seems I spent several hours rummaging through my craft stash and struggled to find anything I had not opened or used lol…. But… wait! what's this I found…
An unopened poinsettia dies, a pack of Craftwork cards Christmas sentiments and some red divine twine I have been saving since I won it a few weeks ago…
Using an image I won but had not used yet.. Ava Christmas - mistletoe fairy from Bugaboo isn’t she the cutest..
SO here is my card

the poinsettia are out for low shine mirror card and I have used stickles ermmmmmmmmm everywhere! hhaha :0)
