Shopping Our Stash Challenge 98: Dollar Store or Bargain Bin Find

Hello!  Today we have a challenge at Shopping Our Stash that is near and dear to my heart- dig out those bargains and/or the $1 or $1.50 buys and show us!  I love to sort thru those bargain bins at Michaels and anything marked "clearance" there and at my LSS.  I also shop at Dollarama for crafty things.

For this card I used a stamp from Michaels- 1.50 I think for two in a package.  I think that was the price.   I embossed it with seafoam white EP from Ranger, then used Distress Inks over it.  The sentiment is from SU.  The cardstock is Gina K white and Bazzil is the base.  I embossed white cardstock with Baby's Breath embossing folder from Cuttlebug, and used ditress inks over it.  The border is the de-bossed side of matching cardstock- added some twine.  The bling is from a pack of a zillion for a buck from Dollarama.

Hope you can join us at Shopping Our Stash- would love to see your bargain finds!
