Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Dust off your stash

*Please scroll down for my Goodwill Blog Hop & Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT projects :0) *

This week, it's my turn to set the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, and I have chosen:

'Dust off your stash'
(In other words, show some love to something neglected)

My neglected stash, is this adorable 'Ruffles - A Present for You' by Helz Cuppledich for Stampavie...which last saw ink at the start of last August...shocking! I coloured him with watercolour pencils, then cut it out using one of my 'Lacey Circle' Nesties (available here at the Secret Crafter). The papers are from the 'Colourful Christmas' collection by My Mind's Eye...and I distressed the edges a little before adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Critter Party' set by Penny Black.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration, please check out the fabulous samples by my lovely DT buddies over at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.
