Birthday Sundaes #36 - Use Old/Neglected Stash Sponsored by Karen Doodles

It is Sunday and time for another Birthday Sundaes challenge!  This week's challenge is to use your old/neglected stash on your birthday card (that way you'll have more room to replace it this holiday season...hehe)! Remeber that it must have a birthday sentiment/wording on the card front!  We have a fun sponsor Karen Doodles who has generously shared a few digi images with the Design Team...THANK YOU!!  One lucky winner will win their choice of 3 digi images!  Here is my birthday card using Fairy Princess from Karen Doodles

I don't know about you but my black/white scrap pile is my most neglected portion of my stash!  I never grab for it because it is such a mess plus my girls tend to use it heavily!  The white backgroud piece was so scrappy that I had to cover it with a rainbow of My Craft Spot Crinkle Ribbon!

This is how scrappy that white piece was.  I have some old dimensions on one side and the kids had drawn on the other!!  All I did to cover it was run a line of adhesive down the length of it, applied the ribbon and repeated with each color!  Now it is a fun birthday card!!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Fairy Princess image!!  Don't you just love her?  My other piece of neglected stash included in this card are my adhesive backed rhinestones.  I have so many of them and never use them.  The pink ones are so old that the adhesive has dried up on most of them!   Another one of my neglected items, my Stampin' Up Stamps!  The "Birthday Wishes" is from an old Hostess Set.  I have a whole dresser of them and never get them out any more!  I think I need to change that! 

Please join us at Birthday Sundaes by using your old/neglected stash on your birthday card this week for your chance to win your choice of 3 super cute images from Karen Doodles!  Thanks for stopping by today!

How clever-love the ribbon idea of running it down the front as a back layer. The fairy princess image is just adorable Amber. You did an awesome job on the coloring and I love the little bling on her shoes. So cute!
