Challenge: Use it Tuesdays #15

I found a new challenge blog the other day that I really love - Use it Tuesdays - the premise is to use our hoarded supplies. This should really get me using both my DSP (I am a paper hoarder) and stamp sets that I just love and buy, but then they sit on the shelf waiting for inspiration. Well, now I have the motivation!! This week we are to use an un-inked stamp. More than a few months ago I purchased a retired Stampin' Up! stamp set online for a song..."Wings of Friendship"... and have yet to use it *sheepish grin* So I thought this is my chance! I looked in this month's issue of Stampin' Success and was inspired by a neat technique using the new Simply Scored tool - ruffled paper! It was so simple!! I grabbed my DSP and started ruffling and I must say this is a technique I am going to use again! So simple, yet it adds so much to a card! I also had fun making the spiral rose :)
