It's Tuesday and that means a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash! The challenge this week is to go back into the neglected areas of our stashes and pull out or print out our oldest stamp or digi and create something with it! I have to confess I am not sure this is the exact oldest one but its the oldest of the stamps I still have. I tend to sell the ones I don't use or get tired of.. but I kept this cutie! It's from The Greeting Farm called Dahlia in the Wild Sprouts line. I started making cards in 2009- I think I made a couple in 2008 but that's about it.
I colored with copics, used Basic Grey paper, SU and. Gina K cardstock, and WOC flowers and some ribbon from my stash. I love m TGF stamps and need to use them more often! I added some stickles too. And yes, the flowers on the top row are a bit off-center. Sorta like me. I was wrestling with my hot glue gun and had a little incident and the center flower fell to that spot, and I couldn't move it in time. Just keepin' it real.

Now don't laugh but this was my attempt in May of 2009! I guess I was thinking more is better and apparently stuck one of each type of embellishment I had on the poor card. Oh well, we all have to learn, right?
