Old and New

This week at Crafty Creations Challenges, we are asking you to use something old and something new! Our sponsor is Inky Impressions, and I used a (new) sentiment from their store, paired with an (old) image from Paper Smooches to make a gift tag:

While I was on the old/new theme, I decided to look at it another way. I looked through my collection of previously stamped, die-cut and patterned paper scraps, and combined a few to create a new card: 

The diecut daisies, embossed panel, and patterned paper are all "old"; the ribbon is being used for the first time. 
I've shown two different ways to interpret "something old, something new"; I'm sure you can come up with more! Remember to link up your creation by next Tuesday evening.

Supplies: (tag) white cardstock, Simple Stories Summer Fresh patterned paper, Paper Smooches and Inky Impressions images, Prismacolor pencils, hole punch, paper raffia ribbon, pop-dot tape; (card) white cardstock. watercolour paper, Recollections patterned paper, Simon Says Stamp fresh daisies die, Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder, tumbled glass & peeled paint distress inks, Creative Memories corner-rounding punch, May Arts ribbon, pop-dot tape
Pin It Now!

This is a great theme Linds. What a contrast of the PP, font and colors. TFS
