Something Old, Something New at Dream Valley

Hi Folks
Another new challenge is starting today over at Dream Valley.
We have not one, not two but three fab sponsors for this challenge.  They are:
One Stop Card Crafts - £10 voucher for their store
Crafty Ribbons - a new Bev bag selection
Joanna Sheen - £10 for the on line store
Now the challenge is a nice easy one for you all:

Something old, Something new

Simply create a project using some old stash and some new stash.  Just let us know what you have used that is old and what you have used that is new.  Simples.

Here is my inspiration project for you.

I used a lovely stamp from Little Claire.  It is so sweet and comes with fab sentiments too.  I coloured it using promarkers.  I embossed and distressed a central panel using using a patchwork embossing folder.  Love all the designs on it and the faux stitching.  Patchwork seemed to work in nicely with moving home.  I also used red gingham papers as that always seems quite homely.  Some ribbon, pins, a flower and some heart gems finished the card.   By the way, my new stash is the stamp and embossing folder and everything else was old stash.

I do hope you will pop over to Dream Valley and check out the design team work.  So many fab creations and all so different.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Passion for Promarkers - Needles and Pins
Card Makin Mamas - Hearts
I Love Promarkers - Anything goes
Sweet Stamps - A favourite technique (stamping)
Catch The Bug - Anything goes

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations.
