Accessories challenge

I have a problem. For some reason, I seem to hoard new accessories. They're always so bright and shiny in the catalog and I buy them up, but then they just sit on my craft room shelves. I decided to challenge myself to use some of my newest goodies. On this card, 4 out of the 7 accessories I used were new to the Fall-Winter catalog!

So, are you also guilty of hoarding accessories? If so, I hope you'll accept my challenge to free those beauties and show me your fabulous creations! Just post a link to your project on a blog, on SCS, or anywhere else you store your projects. Have fun and remember, admitting your problem is the first step....

Stamps: Cute & Curly
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Bella Rose designer series paper, Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon, Button Bouquet, curly label punch, boho blossom punch, mini glue dots, stampin' dimensionals

I have been challenging myself not to hoard too. It's tough! But we can always buy more, right? And I hate having a bunch of retired stuff left, so that's good motivation! Ha, almost forgot to say that I love your card!

Oh yes - hoarding is definitely one of my sins!! LOL!! But I've been doing better since I've been blogging, it is more fun to show them off on your blog than to have them sit on your desk, so I have been working on my problem! LOL!! Love how you used all the fun stuff on your card!!! Isn't that kiwi kiss ribbon delicious!

oh so guilty as charged! When giving a card you have to think are they embellishment worthy!!! I need to start using more too before they go and retire on me.

beautiful creation btw

Yes, ma'am, guilty as charged! And then they retire and I can't use them for demonstrations anymore. Love the way you used your accessories!
