Back to the Stash #1 and CPS sketch #1

Today is the first Back to the Stash challenge(if you haven't read about my new challenge, check out yesterday's post.)I decided to combine this with the CPS sketch #1 as well. Here is the sketch:

And here are the supplies from my stash that I used for this card. I have had the stamp set (and maybe used it once) and the stickers for at least 2 years. The ribbon I found at Target the Christmas before last. I am happy to have finally used these!

Here is my card:

A close up so you can see where I added stickles to the trumpet, bricks, flags and stars.

And last my daughter used some of the stickers to create her own card!

Would you like to play along? If so, dig through your stash and use something that has been neglected for far too long.
