SOS Challenge #66 "My Favorite Things"

At Shopping Our Stash this week the new challenge (#66)  is: My Favorite Things. We are asked to make a card that features our favorite things. It could be brads, pretty paper, ribbon, a certain shape, stickers, rub-ons ... anything you love to put on a card! That should be easy, right! Unless you are like me and have LOTS of favorites. I made a list  and then tried to use as many as possible in one card. Here's what I came up with, a birthday card for my daughter, Lindsey.

The hardest part was not covering up too much of the pretty DP! I changed the layout several times!

The paper flowers have been in my stash for over a year and I can't remember the brand or where I got them. You can layer the individual layers any way you want. The center tiny flower is a glittery one from Petaloo.

My list of favorites included K&Co DP (Que Sera Sera set), textured cardstock, flowers, leaves, Spellbinders dies (especially the fancy border ones!), distressing, twine, lace, ribbon, tea-dyed seam binding, pearls, Stickles, and swirly font sentiments! I did not use everything in the picture...but most of it!

I'm so sorry that my post is a couple days late this week! I went camping for a few days, but left a day earlier than planned (Tuesday) so my Monday got messed up with packing and I completely forgot!
I hope you will join us this week at SOS for our "Favorite Things" challenge! We would love to see what it is that you REALLY enjoy working with! Maybe we can inspire each other!

Oh, one more thing! Some of the people at SOS are going to start a NEW challenge blog...this one will be for anything BUT a card! So if you are looking for something like that, please stop by and  join us!  It is going to go live on Sunday, Sept. 2!
 I don't want to confuse you on this Shopping Our Stash challenge, so just click HERE to find out about the other blog!
Happy crafting, Friends!

Fabulous card, Sandie! Love those rich, warm colors. I adore the big flower too. Wish I had a big stash of prima flowers. I just love them, but have to drive way into the city to get them. This is gorgeous!

Yes, Jessi, it IS a PSX. I got it from my sweet MIL who quit stamping several years ago and gave me all of her supplies!
