Shopping Our Stash (60)... precious birthday

Good evening! I have to confess that I love buying scrapping supplies- all those lovely papers, ribbons and flowers! I have accumulated quite a bit , but I hestitate using them , I'm always saving that special flower or brad for just the right occasion. Well , the  clever DT at Shopping Our Stash are  inviting us to pull out those "precious" products and use them!!!! I decided that I would use some of my flower hoard collection and maybe even a brad or two for my card!

Those lovely mulberry flowers on the top are from a collection that I got ages ago , but they just sat there,looking oh so pretty in their glass jar ,until now!!! Yup,I used 5 of these beauties  plus some of my precious crochet ribbon I got at Ribbon Carousel last spring. I even used some of my new paper for the front ( Fancy Pants "Summer Soul" collection). I really love the soft vintage-y feel of this card.
The brad is retired SU! ( 2-3 campaigns ago, I think!) and the pearls are also SU.

Thanks for looking and please check out what the DT at SOS for this week's challenge- you are sure to be inspired to use some of your own precious items on your next project!

Until next time... happy crafting!
