Artist Trading Cards for the De Stash Challenge

I have seriously been bitten by the Artist Trading Card bug!  This is a new concept for me so let me give a brief explanation.  Think Baseball Trading Cards, but instead of player stats, they are all about art.  Other than the size, {2.5 inches by 3.5 inches} just about anything goes!  Most Artist Trading Cards have a lovely, positive message along with the artwork.

If you would like to participate in a fun exchange, let me know and I'll get you added to the group!
Thankfully, it is time for another Monthly De Stash Challenge!  That's a perfect excuse to fuel my new crafty addiction, right?  ;-)  Everything was already in my jam-packed craft room.

I used paper and cardstock, stamps and ink,

 pens and markers, brads and small flowers,

glitter, glue and mod podge,

rhinestones, sequins, one button and some gardening stickers.

AND...  I even added Part 3 to my Call Home Series!  ;-)  Seriously, that green rhinestone does not look so creepy in real life.  'Not sure what happened with the flash.

What's in your stash?

Every month a group of bloggers are challenged by C'mon Get Crafty to create a new craft or project from their own stash of goodies! Check out some awesome creations you might be able to make from your own stash! #CraftRoomDestashChallenge
