Forgotten...Discovered...Uncovered...

I've got so many stamping supplies and embellishments hiding in my crowded craft room.  The've been hidden, tucked away and practically forgotten but this week's WoodwareUSA Blog challenge changed that for a few little embellishments that have been rediscovered!!!

This week's challenge at WoodwareUSA Blog is to create something using some forgotten embellishments.  What a wonderful idea!  Time to start organizing, pitching and purging right?  Well, that's more difficult than said and it's taking me a LONG time to get this "crap" room under control.  I'm hoping some stamp sales and ebay auctions will help this summer.  Lord knows I'm defintiely over capacity!!! 

I found some K&Co butterflies and some of that once-popular fuzzy yarn in one of my drawers and decided they would be my "forgotten embellishments".  Well, they may have been forgotten in that drawer, but when they were pulled out, I knew exactly what they were meant to be for...just didn't get around to it...I guess that's what a lot of my stuff is about...Ideas, Ideas, Ideas...that don't get around to it!!! 
For this card I used some old ribbon threaded lace, some fuzzy yarn and that pretty little butterfly...all forgotten items in my ribbon drawer...
Paired these embellishments with the stamp set Leafy Swirls and a Spellbinder's Floral Doily Accents

I hope you can find some time to participate in our challenge this week!
