Clear Out

I had a major tidy up and clear out just before Christmas of all my craft stash - finding things I'd forgotten I had, didn't realise I had or just did not use any more.  One of those that I'd forgotten about was two silk Gerber flowers, one of which I've used on this card:

I've used Craft Asylum papers which I got in the Sizzix Big Shot Plus Starter Kit (my early Christmas present as bought in the Black Friday sale), adding a faux running stitch around the edge with a Sakura White Gelly Roll pen.  I've made the bunting and slightly curled the edges.  Waxed string and brads are from my stash (again, found the brads in the tidy up!)

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted however the word dies are now retired and no longer available.

I'd like to enter the following:
