Shopping Our Stash- Not your normal paper!

Hello!  The next two weeks at Shopping Our Stash we are asking you to deviate from the norm and use something other than the normal designer paper on your project.  You can use the regular stuff too, just be sure to incorporate a piece of something a-typical- canvas, cork, velvet, vellum, flocked, glitter, corrugated, etc.  You can also use a page of a book, newspaper, wrapping paper, etc.

For my card I used some canvas paper I picked up at Michael's awhile back.  I paired it with SU card stock and papers from Graphique 45 Secret Garden collection, which I totally love!  I made the card just under 5x7 as originally I was gonna use a larger image, but this way you can see the canvas easily!  I added some pearls and twine- the rest is all from the collection.

I hope you can deviate from the norm this week and join us!

So very cool, Carla! Love that you fringed the canvas (great minds think alike, lol!) and that image with the little girls....just so sweet :)

The canvas looks wonderful! I'm glad you didn't completely cover it up! This is so pretty and perfect for spring!
