Black cardstock

I finally got to use my stack of black cardstock again. CAS-ual Fridays is using black card base this week and I'm joining in :) I'm also inspired by the sketch over at retrosketches.



The paper behind the bag is a piece of beautiful Japanese paper I got from the art store months ago. The bag stamp and flower stamp are from the blog candy I won months ago too (thank you Kymberlee from The Paper Midwife!). Lastly, I finally used the crop-a-dile for the little eyelet on the Japanese paper. I would say I'm really getting into the mindset of using up my craft stash which is exactly what Use It Tuesday encourages (I'm still drawn to buying more craft stash though :S). Come join me again tomorrow for a new challenge over at Use It Tuesday.
