I've spent some time re-organising my stash of coloured cardstock. I hardly ever use coloured card, or patterned paper for that matter, but I sure have a lot of both. At least some of it is a bit more organised now, hopefully that will encourage me to use it more. I bought so much crafting stuff before I really found my "look". If I would do it all over now, I would save a lot of money as there would be so much stuff I wouldn't buy. These days if I buy something I'm pretty sure to actually use it. I'm currently trying to sell off some of my unloved crafty stash on Ebay, I have several Sizzix dies and die sets as well as Stampin' Up stamp sets. All starting at £0.99, so go grab yourself a bargain here. All the stuff is in great condition, although they are all pre-loved. But everything still works perfectly well! I would love for my stuff to find a new, loving home as they are currently just sitting in the cupboard.
One of the things I recently ordered, and I know I will love and use a lot is this adorable new Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid paper. My inspiration for this card was the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and the inspiration image over at Daring Cardmakers. I was inspired by the beautiful pastel spring colours, the bunny and the silver on the cake stand for my card. I was also inspired by the bunny image over at If You Give a Crafter A Cookie. Furthermore, I'm linking up with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where Anything Goes, Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge, Fussy and Fancy Challenges where the theme is pastel colours and Creative Corner Challenges where the theme is Use Embossing Powder.
