Joy in a Pear Tree!

This week’s There She Goes challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the Week, Alex! For this challenge you will need to pull out some of your supplies that you’ve had sitting around for six months or more! What better way to get rid some old patterned papers or embellishments? You might even rediscover an old love!  Pull out the oldies, but goodies, because we can’t wait to see what you come up with! 

Well, I have a few more Christmas cards to make, but we're getting closer!  



I've used some old SU! Designer paper, Thoroughly Modern and some Rhinestone Brads that were in my stash sitting unnoticed and unappreciated :)   I've paired them with this great new set Season's Greetings from TSG.  The partridge in the pear tree looks so fun to me.  I've colored it all up with Prismacolors and OMS, then sponged the edges using my Labels 17 as a template.  




So join us on the challenge!  

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that utilizes supplies that have been unused for six months or more, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (Dec. 20th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store! 

Recipe:  Stamps - TSG - Season's Greetings;  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black;  Paper:  Bermuda Bay Textured, Soft Suede, Thoroughly Modern DSP, Flourishes Classic White Cardstock;  Accessories:  Big Shot, Labels 17 Nesties, Victorian Borderabilities, Prismacolor Pencils, OMS, Blending Stumps, Dimensionals, Dotted Bermuda Bay Ribbon, Bow Easy, Ice Rhinestone Brads.
