Challenge 125 - Expect the Unexpected! Use something from your stash! (Week Two)

Hello Ai Fans!
Welcome to week two of our "Expect the Unexpected" challenge! We hope you've been finding some stuff in your stash to whip up a fun card to share!

I'm not sure about you, but I spent a lot of time over the holiday breaks cleaning and organizing. I actually received a big L-shaped desk ask a gift for my craft area! I really wanted to post a picture for you all, but it's still not 100% complete and I try not to show off my messes! ;)

 I haven't had a desk area to work at my house in about 7 months, so I unloaded 3 boxes and 7 tote bags of my stuff! I have been crafting since I was in high school, so you can imagine I have accumulated a lot over the years. To my biggest surprise, how many items I was SO excited about in the stores, that haven't even been touched!

So this is the challenge I pose to you …

Grab those items! Use them for this challenge!

I'm pretty sure letting craft items go unused is the ultimate no-no in the crafting world! [Note: Keeping scraps is good! I encourage it!] Pull out something you've had your eye on. So we can expect the unexpected. Here's some ideas:
Washi Tape
Alphas
Spare Ribbon
Punches
Dies
Embossing Folders
Inks
Paint
Stencils
You name it! Just make sure to name it in your post so we know what you used!

Our DT is back this week for some AMAZING inspiration!
Make sure to check out their blogs for what they used from their stash!
