Challenge 7 - "Dig out the Old to use with the New!!"

Happy Sunday everyone

Wow wow wow!! Thanks you to all our fab new followers and also a staggering 300+ people that entered our lil challenge last time! Cant believe there was so many, its was so hard to pick our Top 3 but if you scroll down to the last post you'll find our them and our Winner!

This week we have a wee bit of a Challenge twist for you all!


We wanna see you use something NEW from your stash plus OLD stash too! So that could be some new papers with an old stamp or even just some old stuff recycled with a new scrap layout! Easy!!

As always you can enter anything you like, doesn't have to just be a card! We wanna see scrap layouts, jewellery, altered items, anything goes as long as it follows the theme!

I used a NEW gold charm from a high street shop and OLD wooden and gold beads that I've had for ages.

I used new copics on the trousers, new image and sentiment (both from DWA), and old paper, ribbon and card blank
