SOS Challenge #8 Out with the old OR In with the New

It's time for another fun Challenge over at Shopping our Stash Challenge Blog!  For our 7th Challenge we've called it "Out with the Old - In with the New which means we want to see you:

Use your paper and/or embellishments that you have "saved" because it was special or find your oldest designer paper and use it OR break out your newest items and use them!   Be sure to tell us what you are using in your post!

Sounds easy & fun, right?  I mean who doesn't hoard their favourite line of DP or embellishments because they are just too pretty to use or because you are waiting for the perfect moment to use them.  Well NOW IS THAT TIME!!  If you saw my post on Sunday and saw the gardening journal I made you would know that I hoard tons of stuff and am finally letting loose and using it :)

For my card today I used some DP by Dream Street (Wonderland-Let it Snow line) that I've had for awhile.

I don't know what it is but I tend to hold on to Christmas paper and not use it.  This pretty snowflake paper is one I've been holding onto for so long.  I thought it worked perfectly with this super cute Magnolia "Snowman with Snowflake" image that I've had coloured for quite some time and never made into a card.  I used some Snow Marker to add texture to the little guys hat, snowflake and snowbank and added a rhinestone in the snowflake centre for a little bling!

Now all I want to do is make Christmas cards or at least cute little cards with snowmen on them!!  Can't wait to see what you come up with and what your favourite embellishments, papers etc to save are!

I am feeling weak in the knees over this adorable card! I'm in love with the image! Oh, yes lovely papers too and a shame you had to cut into them, but the final result is perfection!
