SHOPPING OUR STASH #248 Chip Off The Old Block

Hello friends and welcome! It's time for a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! This week, we want you to break out those chipboard bits and pieces you've been hoarding and use them on your card or project. I've had this box of chippies for I don't know how many years, and I think I've only used one or two so far. Yay me for using another piece for my card:

 and the inside:

I built my card around that pretty chipboard ring, pulling colors to use from the design on it. I think this is the first time I've used that postage stamp die, even though I've had it for over a year. (Yes. I know. Hoarder. Guilty) I thought a delicate butterfly would look cute resting on the ring, so I die cut it twice from lighter and darker pink card stock and glued them on top of each other. A couple sentiments finish off my card.

I hope that you get a chance to play along with our chipboard challenge at Shopping Our Stash! We'd love to see what you made. While there, why not check out what the design team have created for your viewing pleasure and leave them some bloggy love?! Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day!
