Sketch & Stash challenge 2

A lovely sketch at Sketch and Stash this week. The rules are:
Use your new or never used (or neglected) stash on your cards and let us know what these items are, it's as simple as that!!
My NEW is the Magnolia image Angel of the Year 2008, which I coloured with my Derwent pastel (OLD - about 25yrs) which I have just decided to start using again. The Bc is bazzill and the paper I used (OLD) HOTP. I finished the corners off on the image with a stamp from the Basic Grey collection - Boxer (NEW). The panels I cut with the Martha Stewart punch and added ribbon around the centers. I tried very hard not to use a flower but failed miserably, although I did use the center for the computer generated sentiment.


Materials
Papers - Bazzill & HOTP
Stamps - Magnolia Angel of the Year & Basic grey Boxer
Derwent pastels
Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch
Rest from stash.
