Vintage Old/New at Sugar Creek Hollow



Happy Saturday my friends....hope you have had a fabulous week and are ready to get to this week's challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow   where we are having a vintage old/new theme. We want you to use something old and something new on your card...your choice, just be sure to tell us in your post what they are. For my card I used one of my favorite older Stampin' Up sets, Garden Collage which I colored with my new Spectrum Noir markers and sponged with my very old Stampin' Up chalks. Don't you love those papers? They are some that I just bought weekend before last while at the stamp show Olga , Becky and I attended. They are K&Co "McKenna" and I picked them up on clearance at a craft store we went to after the show. I love the pad and see myself using them a lot in the near future. 

On the chipboard butterfly is distress crackle paint in antique linen, I stamped the lace from Gina K Designs vintage borders on the butterfly and added some of her pearls. I also used the full border for the inside of this card. I didn't put a sentiment as I am not sure what occasion I will send this card for.

 

I have missed visiting with everyone for a bit as I have been away or completely tied up for the last couple of weeks, but I hope to have more time to visit and catch up with everyone soon.
My niece and I went to the beach for a few days to celebrate her graduation from college in education....she went by for her degree after spending lots of years as a hair stylist. I am very proud of her!!

I hope you will all stop by at SCH and see what my talented teammates have created to inspire you this week and will post your own card and share along with us. 

Have a wonderful weekend my friends and thanks for stopping in!
