Something Old, Something New

The theme for this weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge has been set by Lythan and it's to create a card featuring something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Here's what I've come up with this week......
I love collecting vintage bits and pieces to use in my crafting so that was the first part of my stash I raided and picked out a vintage doily and a book page. I also had an old IKEA pillow case in my fabrics pile so I picked that out then decided to go for a kind of shabby chic kind of thing. For my new bit I picked out the last stash I invested in some K&Co Smash tape and paper tabs. The borrowed bit was tricky I was going to use one of my grandmas vintage photos, (well a copy obviously) but I couldn't get my printer to play so I had to think of something else. It's rather tenuous but the paper at the back of the card is one piece of Sassafras Mix & Mend and I cut out or 'borrowed' a scallop piece from the middle to use as a layer. I did the same with the doily cutting out the middle bit to use as one of the layers. The pillowcase fabric I used as a little banner. For the blue I added a blue rose brad, (American Crafts) and a blue pearl in the felt flower.
Play along with this weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge, leave a link so we can come and see what you've been creating! http://www.daringcardmakers.blogspot.com

Beautiful card Leo, I tried so hard to fit some fabric on my card for this challenge (inspired by you) but couldn't get it to work. I love your 'borrowed' idea! xx
