Thinking of you

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack, and this week it is Anything Goes!!
 Our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish and I was given this little cutie to work with:
Pretty cute, huh?  I dug deep into my stash for this one; the only thing that is newer than probably 3 or four years old is the image.  The leaf paper is from one of those big 12x12 printed paper packs that I got on sale at JoAnn's about 15 or so year ago.  You know the ones I mean: about 150 pages for $19.99, but they were half price for $9.99.  And I HAD to have them and have spent the last 15 years thinking I will NEVER be able to use them. : )  This leaf print has been one of my favorites and I think I am down to less than half a sheet now.  The mulberry paper, I have had nearly as long and probably for the same reason: it was a BIG pack for a cheap price.  Anyway, all of those "I'm never going to be able to use these" all added up to a rather fun card.  The rhinestones were also an old stash and I finally used up the pack on this card!  Yeay!!  Hopefully, this will encourage you all to take a look at those old papers, embellies, etc and see how you can use them in a new way.  I hope you'll get a chance to play along with us this week; I can't wait to see what you create.

Supplies:
Stamps: Robyn's Fetish "Bearly a Pumpkin" digi; Verve "Take Note" sentiment
Dies: Spellbinders "A2 Matting Basics A" rectangles

Challenges:
As You Like It--do you prefer new or old stash (of course, I LOVE new stash, who doesn't, but I am trying really hard not to buy any new papers or ribbons right now because I have so many.  As you can see from my description above, I really get a kick out of using up my old stash)

Way to use up that dp!! I have a ton of paper I rarely use too. I should make myself use some each week. Anyway, your card is adorable. I really like that sweet bear image with the pumpkin outfit - too cute. Thank you for sharing with us at DRS Designs.
