CHA Challenge #6

Good morning paper crafting friends. I'm here today, posting as a guest designer for the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge blog. Today's challenge is a sketch chalenge, with a twist. Follow the sketch and the twist is that you must search your hoard and find one item that is Old and one item that is NEW and use both of them on your project. Here's the sketch:

Here's my card:

For this card I used paper from G45 Sweet Sentiments line (my NEW item). I started with a cardstock base using SU! YoYo-Yellow (this was my OLD, very old supply of paper). I layered on some G45 papers, adding a lacy edge that was punched using a Martha Stewart punch. The image is framed using a frame cut from Spellbinders which I then sprinkled with MS glitter. The flower in the upper right corner (also OLD)was sprayed with my own mix of shimmery paint and water to create a spray. I added the leaves (punched using a MS punch) and paper roses. I finished this off with some grossgrain ribbon.

That's it for my project! Don't forget to link up your project on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog by Midnight, Sunday, May 4th for your chance to win this awesome prize pack from our April sponsor, Hampton Art. You can find all the details to the challenge HERE.
