Habertrashery

Couldn't think up a title for this post, came up with habertrashery because as well as using stuff from the haberdashers on my card for the DMcers dare I've used vintage buttons and a page from an old pattern making book so that's the trash bit...
When I read the dare this morning I knew I had to have a play because my desk at the mo looks like the after effect of a free for all in the haberdashery dept. Seriously there's buttons and threads and ribbons everywhere so that's basically what my card turned out like, all these bits I've got laying round squished into a 140mm squared card blank!

I used a Petaloo blossom, MayArts ribbon and some more bits from Ribbon Oasis, Lace from my local haberdashers, Habiknit and buttons, some vintage some not, one's a Love Elsie chipboard one.

Just like to also add that I absolutely love a good rummage in a Haberdashers. Rooting round for little forgotten gems for 35p a bundle and going to the till with armfuls of goodies that always seem to add up to less that £10.00? Love it! :-D
