Waste not Wednesdays

Hi everyone, hope you all feeling fine!! Another cold, dark day here so apologies for the dreadful pic but the light here is terrible!  Anyways, i thought i'd take a leaf out of Lisa's (Wishcraft) book and link up to Waste not Wednesdays and try to use up some of the things i've stashed over the years. I'm ashamed to say there's probably enough stuff in my craft room to stock a small shop lol!! Now, i know Lisa said new stamps and digis in her post but i did check with her before i linked this! So, for this card i used the gorgeous Sugar and Spice papers and chipboard toppers collection - all brand new and unused! I love these papers and the hot spicy colours - and there's so much in the stack! Simple matting and layering, a piece of brown ribbon and a layered flower - done! And enough left for lots more lol!
Hope you like it!
