Amber's Crafts & Stuff #1: Stashbuster/Anything Goes

Amber's Crafts & Stuff launches her Challenge Blog today with Stashbuster/Anything Goes. Now I know everyone loves Anything Goes, and who hasn't got some old stash they really, really should have used by now. Go dig it out and join us in a fun Challenge here 
I used up a fine amount of stash on this card, the youngest of my old stash is the House Mouse decoupage, which is about 1yr old and I'm extremely miserly with it. I mostly just get it out and look at how pretty it is lol, but occasionally break them out and make a baby card.   The very oldest is the quilling papers which I used to weave a background. I've woven a few in the past in different colours, it's a lot of fun. The card blanks I used to make my easel cards is probably just as old too. I used to buy them when I was first cardmaking....then I discovered sheets of card stock. The blanks usually get cut up now. 

A few close ups of the details.

This is gorgeous, Linda. I can't really tell what the card front looks like, but I love the little House Mouse figures. (You thought I was going to say House Mices, didn't you? LOL.) Seriously, I love the card. Hugs, dj

Oh, I forgot to tell you how much I like your use of the quilling papers. I have some also when I went through my "quilling phase". Great Idea. Hugs, dj

Love the "charm" in the upper left corner :-)
It´s so clever to use up stash instead of throwing it away - such pretty cards are the result!

So cute Lin! I love the little paccy (dummy) embellie too, perfect finishing touch. :-)

I love this card, Lin! I love all of your work and this especially well. I love the look of the woven background. You must have a lot more patience than I do! LOL
