Clear It out Challenge week 2

As promised I have another card for the Spring Challenge!

This week I used a Digi Darla image called Pansy Pots. Continuing with the Anything but A Rectangle" theme and spring colors, I cut apart a very old embossed card and made it an easel.  I had a lot of fun coloring the embossed parts with my Dusty Concord Distress Ink Pad. I took 2 4-petal  Prima flowers and made the pansy with an old plastic rhinestone in the middle.  When I was cleaning out a basket in my room, I came across a sheet of 3d butterflies that have been  there for at least 2 years, this yellow one was perfect to make the easel stand up. Of course tissue/washi tape is a fairly new addition to my collection, but much of it is still at least a year old. And the little metal "Spring" is a snap!  So it is SEVERAL years old as well. I will admit the crocheted butterfly is new.  But the thread used to make it is probably 5 years old. (Want to make your own?  I found this lovely instructional video (I did not make this video but it's really cool!) here

 I just love using up old stash!  Don't you?

So now it is your turn!  Show us what you can do with Spring colors in any shape but a rectangle.  And don't forget to share a link to your project with us on the Clear It Out Challenge Blog.  You have 1 week left!
