New & Old Card

Ok so I've had a free night for scrapping this evening, and so I decided I'd make a card to wnter into Kim Kesti's challenge. Here's her challenge.
 "Create a card or other project that combines at least one new item and one item from your stash. Let's say the older item must be at least one year old." (quoted from Kim's blog post here)

I just love a good ol' challenge, and this one sparked something in me that said, "Go do it!" The new items I used on this card are the Pebbles Inc. Sunny Day mini pad papers and the Pebbles Inc. Sunny Day mini type stickers. (Fresh from my shopping sack; I bought these items today!) The old items I used are the tree stamp (from My Favorite Things Stamps) and the American Crafts badge. Both items I received in my FIRST EVER big prize. I won it from a random sweepstakes from Paper Crafts about 2 or 3 years ago. I'm thinking that was 3 years ago.

I came up with this card design all myself; aren't ya proud? [insert huge grin here]

Ok- have a great rest of the week! I might be back with some more projects later this week. We'll just have to see. ;)

Great card! All we need sometimes to dig out something we have had for awhile is a fun challenge. Love the pretty papers you used and the gingham and twine look so good paired up.
Hope you are enjoying your summer vacation! :)
