Dream Valley Challenge #7: Something Old, Something New

Good afternoon all, I hope everyone is having a good weekend.  So, another challenge at Dream Valley, and this time the theme is
"DIG OUT THE OLD TO USE WITH THE NEW"

We want you to use something NEW from your stash plus some 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: scrap layouts, jewellery, altered items, anything goes as long as it follows the theme.

Our sponsor this fortnight is Digis With Attitude, and one lucky winner will receive a voucher to spend at their online store.   

Everything on my card is either brand new or old (and I mean YEARS old). The image is one from our sponsor, Digis With Attitude, which I've only just received - it's called Disco Tween. The sentiment is also from them, it was part of a prize I won recently and again the first time I've used it.  I also broke out 2 brand new copic markers on the trousers, BG72 and BG75. The paper is part of a DCVW mat stack that I've had for a few years - the stack is called All Dressed Up, which I thought suited the Disco image. All the other embellishments and the ribbon have also been knocking around my craft boxes for so long I'd forgotten I even had them. Even the card blank is an ancient one....I am trying to use up the packs of C6 card blanks I bought back when I was a baby cardmaker.





Image: Disco Tween, from Digis With Attitude
Sentiment: from Sentiment Set 1 from Digis With Attitude
Colouring: Copic markers
DP: DCWV All Dressed Up mat stack
Ribbon, heart, sequin and gem from my stash



I'm entering this in these challenges:
Belli Challenge - the letter S (I have Sparkle, Stripes, Silver heart, flower Sequin, Spotty background added to image, and Sassy!). My old forgotten embellishments are the heart and the sequin, I found them when rummaging round in my embelly box for something green or silver.
By The Cute And Girly - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Desert Island Craft Challenge - 3 or more items from list (I used No. 1 patterned paper, No. 3 glitter/bling, No. 4 ribbon, No. 5 image, No. 9 flower [the sequin])
Divas By Design - Anything Goes
Frosted Designs - use Ribbon or Twine (I used silver ribbon and some very thin green ribbon)
Incy Wincy Designs - Mothers Day/GIRLIE
Little Claire - Sparkle (glittery silver stripes in backing paper, silver sparkly ribbon, metallic silver heart, shiny sequin, flower gem, glitter on eyelids)
Make It Colourful - colour a dotty background (I put green dots around my disco girl)
Penny's Challenges - Anything Goes
Southern Girls - Let's Hear It For The Girls
Stampavie - Ribbons (I used 2, a sparkly silver one and a thin green one)


Sorry I haven't been around to visit blogs and leaving comments recently, I just haven't been well enough for blogging. I'll be back soon though, till then Happy Crafting everyone!
