Shopping Our Stash - #232 My Precious

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Welcome to another fun challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH!  

Our Theme this week is "MY PRECIOUS."  
Use something you have hoarded that you never, ever, planned to actually use. Piece of pretty paper? Special embellishment?  Tell us what your is your Precious element.
When it comes to hoarding, in my world, it is anything from Graphic 45.
I have tons and tons of G45 Collections.  I am a member of a buying club and we get G45 at a group discounted rate, so I can get the stamps, papers, embellishments, etc., at a deeply discounted price.  Great, right? Wrong, because I never want to use the stuff.  In 2016, I plan to start using my papers. bs'd

I had to find a way to incorporate those stunning birds!  The micro beads and glitter don't photograph as well as I would like, but IRL, they jus sparkle.
Creating this project put me in an oriental state of mind and I completed two more designs using the Graphic 45 Birdsong papers.  I also fell in love all over again with the faux metal embossing.

My teammates at Shopping Our Stash have creates some pretty awesome projects for your inspiration.  Stop by and leave your "Precious" and a little love!
