Whoopsi Daisy - use up your stash

It's time for another challenge at  Whoopsi Daisy  and this week it's team A's turn to share their inspiration with you. The theme this week is "Use up Your Stash" or you can do Anything Goes if you use a Whoopsi Daisy image on your project.

I've used an image from sheet #199 which was already printed and lying on my desk, coloured with promarkers and a gold gel pen. Base card is made with a fancy grand circle - I had one already cut and cut the other from a piece of card from the bit box. I've used the tinselly thread to hold the front and back of the card together. The backing paper was also a leftover from another project and I think it is Papermania. The sentiment and poinsettia are from my stash along with a couple of clear gems in the centre of the snowflakes.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the team and remember if you use a Whoopsi Daisy image you could win 2 image sheets, 1 sheet will be awarded to a winner using any other image.
Looking forward to a trip to the playground this week, just hope I haven't missed the Christmas party!
