Something Old Something New

And no it's not a Wedding card.........
My first day home alone in a very long time,I've loads to do but what have I done instead? yes you know me too well,I've made a card. I actually started to sort out the tangled bags that are my ribbon stash as I'd bought some clear long pencil cases which I thought would be perfect to organise it in but you know what it's like,the mind begins to wander and something inspires you so the rest is history. Here's the card. The Gorjuss girl was my mothers day present but I don't know how it happened but for some reason I slid it into my stamp file and never got around to inking it up.
I have come to the conclusion that I shouldn't blog hop before doing my chores as I'm sure that this is the reason for my wandering mind,after seeing Annika's gorgeous creations this morning it got the old juices flowing so Annika,it's all your fault lol!

The Papers are by Anna Griffin,they were papers used in a class project some time ago,I'm not a big fan of them and was reluctant to use the remnants but as my drawers are overflowing I thought I'd give them a go,how wrong was I,I so love them used in this card! Looks like I can manage a bit of vintage,even though it's out of my comfort zone. I think it was the brown lace I found when sorting my ribbons out :)
I'm using this for a few challenges:-
Paper play week 35,Stitches,
Crafty Calendar Challenge,Blue and Flowers,

Bunny Zoes Craft 3,Vintage,

Stamps R Us challenge 3,Stitches,

And I think that's that lol!
Dont forget that there's a brand new challenge started up at Scrapbook sisters and the launch challenge is Pink and Black!There's a fab collection of candy on offer as the first prize so come on,join the challenge!
Have a great Day,I'm off to do some chores now,
