Warm Fuzzies Clear It Out Challenge

Two lovely friends of mine, BARB and LYNN (visit their blogs by clicking on their names) are on the design team for the CLEAR IT OUT CHALLENGE BLOG.
The goal of the challenges are to use items in your craft stash...well there's a novel idea...actually USE some of the stuff I already have????

This week's challenge is Warm Fuzzies...as soon as I read that I thought, ooooohhhhh that red and white flocked damask design paper I have somewhere would be good for this challenge...it feels like velvet...hmmmmm....now what to use with it???

Some of my crafty goals for 2013 include using what's already in my stash, to try and use colour combinations that I don't always use (cherry cobbler / early espresso / old olive) and to try and make different sizes and layouts of cards than my usual layered 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card.

So here's what I came up with for this challenge..a 6x6" card with wonky offset layers. Everything I used for the card is from my stash...some (like the damask paper) has been there for quite a while. The stamp set is relatively new, but this is the first time it's seen ink.

What's in it:
Cardstock - Whisper White & Basic Black (SU)
Flocked Damask Design Paper (SU)
Black Striped Ribbon (SU)
Ink - Black Staz-On
Sentiment - Tim Holtz Idea-ology Chit Chat Stickers
Image - Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Steampunk"

Thanks for lookin!!
