Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge - Use a Hoarded Supply Item

Well I'm back with another card for Loves Rubberstamps and this week's challenge is to use a Hoarded Item which I sure we are all guilty of this. I know I love my ribbons and paper which I hoard extensively and every time CHA comes around twice a year, I keep telling myself I don't need anymore paper or ribbon or even more stuff but it's like a sickness, you can never have enough right? I started off using Soft Suede for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I then used Basic Grey collection called 'Green at Heart' for the rest. I added 3 layers offsetting the last 2 layers. I then cut out Frame, Ornate Oval by Sizzix twice using a purple and stripe paper from the same collection. I placed the stripe frame on top of the purple frame using pop up dots. I printed Pinwheel Birgitte by C.C. Designs Image onto shimmery white paper. I colored her using Prismacolor pencils & added some glitter to the pinwheel. I added some orange & purple rhinestones to the frame and sentiment. I then stamp the sentiment from Whimsy Stamps called 'Fanciful Birthday Notables 1' which you can find here in the store; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_146/Raindrop-Echo-Designs-Sentiments-Collection.htm using black pigment ink onto shimmery white paper and embossed using gold embossing powder. I then colored the sentiment using Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical using the following colors 'Sweet Violet Purple Teal' and 'Hag's Wart Orange'. I added some light green/blue satin ribbon from May Arts.
