It's a Challenge!

My Ocean's 11 blog group participates in weekly challenges and it is my opportunity to host!

In honor of my fall off the wagon, please make a card with something you hoard. It can be paper (not that I know about that!), ribbon, a new stamp, buttons... whatever! Just be sure to tell us what it is when you post your creation!

Here is my card:



I found the image appropriate considering my challenge! This is a new stamp I recently purchased that had yet to see ink.

Stamps: G327 from Great Impressions, TAC sentiment
Paper: PTI white, Real Red
Ink: Nick Bantock Lamp Black, Copics (C1, C3, C5, R22, R25, R27, R29, Y13,YR12, YR16, B14, B18, G5, G7, G14, RV23, V06, V09)
Accessories: SU Ribbon, Stickles

Thanks for looking and I hope you get to play along with the challenge! Everyone is welcome to join in!
