First card for Daring Card Makers Challenge

When I saw the challenge this week was for Golden Oldies ......with so many new things /latest papers/ trendy stuff constantly coming on the market, we thought it would be nice to have a look back, and dig out some of our 'old' papers and embellishments and make a card with our 'preloved' treasures. I think the tendency these days is to get on the 'latest must have' band wagon, sometimes, its nice to recognise what we already have- even if it isn't the 'latest' embellishment/paper.

So true! Some of my favourite papers are the golden oldies that never seem to get used any more, so I dug some out and made this card using one of Katharina's sketches again, I love love love this sketch and will be using it over and over I think! I also inked up one of the first stamps I bought - another thing I've not used in a while.


Rubber Stampede and Stampin Up stamps
K & Co Papers
Prismacolors
Rest of stuff from stash


Thanks for looking,
