It's Tuesday and Time for a NEW Challenge at Shopping Our Stash!!!

At Shopping Our Stash this week we want you to upcycle!!! It's up to your interpretation, but please tell us what the item is because we might not be able to see it immediately.  I was struggling with this one, I usually use something hubby found on the beach with his metal detector but this time I wanted something different. First here is my card.

the leaves an flowers are from a Botanicals die set from Stampin'up, the background is and embossing folder that name eludes me at the moment. Rhinestones from my stash 

I purchased a new purse, it's a LUG and this was the tag that was on it, when I saw it sitting on my desk I thought "aha" it's my upcycle. I did shorten it to fit and rounded the corners added some ancient gold ribbon. 

The quote was my inspiration for the colourful flowers. 

I carried the floral theme to the inside.

Thanks for spending time today and we would love to see your upcycle projects. Head over to the Main Blog and check out the rest of the design team's projects.

Very nicely done! I love reusing clothing tags some of them are quite attractive. Nice project!

Barbara, I think some tags on clothes or accessories are simply beautiful, I'm going to start paying more attention and you gave me an awesome idea to use them.
Love how you decorated this tag that, by the way, is so lovely, and the "sentiment" on it, just perfect.
Fabulously beautiful card, teammate.

😍 beautiful! Great eye for upcycling here-- that tag was meant to be on a card! And the card is, like I said, beautiful!
