Using up old embellishments

I have so many embellishments, that I sometimes think I could open a small craft shop!!!! One of my New Years resolutions is to start using more of my stash before I buy more things and as I have really got into my stamping in the last 5 months, I'm not tending to use embellishments on my cards as much.

The first card I have covered with Karen Neuberger paper. I then stuck 3 papermania sticker dresses to some white card and mounted this onto pale blue, adding little flowers to the corners. Although you can't really see it very well, the sentiment is also from a papermania sheet mounted onto the same pale blue paper.

The second card I covered with dark green paper, I then embossed a mid green with my cuttlebug embossing folder and then slightly distressed it with some sanding paper. The topiary tree is a Crafty Bitz embellishment and the sentiment is an A Muse Art stamp.

Off to bed now, can't believe thatmy Christmas break is over, been off for nearly 2 weeks and it seems to have flown by.
