$10 grab bag CHALLENGE!!!

here is some retired sage shadow precut cardstock that was in my grab bag that i bought off SU! clearance rack. At first i thought "yipee, some cardstock!"... but then thought, "hey i will challenge myself to make some cute cards using ONLY what came in the package!" guess what? all i added was the ink and the sentiment/stamp. so this cardstock you see here was all precut and ready to go along w/ the ribbon, embellishments such as felt flowers, chip board elements, brads and buttons. i REALLY liked that. no thinking involved. I took the choc chip piece to my scallop trim border punch to jazz it up a bit and then added the strip of ribbon adhered w/ 2 staples, a chip board flower(colored chocolate chip w/ my brayer) and then put two felt flowers on top w/ a choc chip brad. ALL these goodies were in my grab bag!

 now you have to remember that all the grab bags were different from each other, so if you bought one or are thinking about doing it, you may not have the same items i had but similar;)

Stay tuned for more cute cards i made out of this SAME grab  bag!
