Something old, Something new.

Hope you all had a good Bank Holiday Monday and enjoyed the lovely sunshine.

It's time for another challenge on Try it on Tuesday.
This week we'd like you to create a card following the theme of Something Old, Something New.

 For the Old I've used this gorgeous Apple Tree stamp by Circa Design which I've had for  years. I used Distress inks for the colouring ,Pineneedle, Vintage photo, Spun Sugar, Fired Brick.

For the New I've used the gorgeous Crackle background stamp by Crafty Individuals embossed using gold fine WOW embossing powder and Spun Sugar DI. I bought this stamp at the NEC in March and this is the first time I've used it.
The green backing paper was made by using Pineneedle DI around the edges of some plain white card.

This week the challenge is sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts so is you decide to enter don't forget to give them a mention and link them in your post.
My fellow teamies have some up with some fantastic designs to inspire you so please pop over to the challenge blog to check them out.
Looking forward to checking out your designs.

I'm entering this card into the Divas by Design challenge which is anything goes.
