S&S Midweek Throwdown - The Unloved Unused Supplies

Is there such a thing?  Unloved unused supplies?  For the veteran stamper like me there is!  If I could return all of my unloved unused supplies I would have a ton more room to put the new loved and can't wait to use supplies I would be able to purchase!  Alas, we must all learn to be content with what we have (ha!) and work with the unlovable unused supplies....for this week anyway!
I had a lot to choose from for this S&S Midweek Throwdown Challenge but I certainly wasn't up to the challenge of trying to use it all!  So, I pulled out the first 3 things that came to mind...rub-ons, die-cut flowers, and Build-a-Brad, all from SU!  Here is the pic:

The die-cut flowers are really fun to look at.  The Build-a-Brad is a fabulous concept.  The rub-ons are a cinch to line up straight.  Still not so sure they were the best investment.  Here is the card I came up with:

The colors (old olive,bashful blue, and chocolate chip) are much prettier in real life but, sadly, the brads are not.  This is my third attempt at using these brads since I purchased them a few years ago and will probably be the last.  Maybe I just don't know how to use them correctly?  Idk.   On the up side...I really liked the rub-ons!  I'm not even sure if you can still get them but I will be looking into it!  I will be using this packet up pretty quickly over the next few weeks!

Time is flying...and I've got more stamping to do!  Thanks for hopping by, please leave me your thoughts and blog address and I'll hop over to visit you, too!

Happy Stamping!
