Shopping Our Stash Challenge 62

As I have been using things from my (already purchased) creative card-making stash during the month of July, I decided to check out a new (for me) blog "Shopping Our Stash". The idea is to use what we already have on hand in our paper crafting stockpile. The challenge today is to use something we bought because we really, really wanted it...and later said "what was I thinking?" My card is made up of several items I have had on hand for months and have never used.
The DP (by Colorbok) is from a packet of black-and-white designs. I was thinking I wanted to make lots of B&W cards, so I bought and stored the packet for later use.
The large Brad from making memories is from a set of 12 B&W brads of differing designs that I opened for the first time today. Again, thinking about B&W.
The digital collage stamp is from one of my favorite sites Free Vintage Digital Stamps. I fell in love with this busy image, downloaded, and used it for the first time on this card.
Lastly, the stamped sentiment was inked up for the first time last night when I stamped several sentiments for use on the cards I make for Operation Write Home. I found it in the dollar bin at Michael's.

Thanks for the great inspiration, "Shopping Our Stash". I have so much of everything I should be able to stay away from the crafty aisle for months ;)
